“You’re only as sick as your secrets,” so the saying goes.

When Aidan MacEwan paid a visit to the local LDS temple for some light family research, he discovered the accuracy and gravity of that adage. While there is a thread of truth woven throughout the ‘official’ story of his parents’ courtship and romance, the fabric of the remaining tapestry is called into question and quickly begins to unravel.

First-time novelist Leslie MacDill calls upon first-hand knowledge and a compelling Scots-Irish ancestral history to give us "Lies We Were Told," recounting the exploits of Aidan MacEwan, an American in search of his lineage who unearths dark secrets, beginning with his deceased father, that stretch back over two hundred years. Each revelation illuminates the deception that surrounds previously unquestioned family stories involving a half-brother he thought long dead (who is anything but) and a step-mother of Jewish descent whose early passing was likely hastened by a broken heart.

The investigation lures him to Great Britain and Northern Ireland in search of the family he never knew - where he is forced to confront his own devils and demons, in this world and beyond, aided by a Caribbean healer, her granddaughter, and a ginger-haired inamorata with probable paramilitary ties. Danger and passion both await the American, who treads an unfamiliar path in the land of his ancestors.
