    We all know the power of words, the harm and praise they can affect, the illustrations and emotions they may evoke and indelibly paint in our minds. Once in a while, a gifted writer churns words, pulls them through a ringer and smashes them against a wall in an unexpected array, to give the reader a brand new emotional experience. This is one of those times.Through Fortmeyer's vision, I was with Charlie all the way; his fears and revelations became my own. Such masterful craft ability is what makes a beautiful telling."Things I Know to Be True" invited me to explore that soul-place where the rich and mysterious power of words can awake sleeping emotions.
