A Welcome Voyeur – A Review of “The Truth About Love”

by April Boden, Truther Talk and Aydan’s Road to Recovery

‘The Truth About Love’ is a funny, sexy, heartwarming and introspective look at what else… love. It starts by following the life of young, sympathetic artist, Will, who has just moved to Boston while leaving behind heartbreak in California. Though ‘the one who got away’, the sexually advanced Jessica, is a constant thought, he finds himself shocked by the great ease in which he is able to attract a bevy of Boston beauties. As if clueless to his charm he is particularly stunned by the affections received from the seemingly perfect though not entirely available, Caroline.

But through all of the sex, drugs and artist portraits…it is the one constant in Will’s life, the heroine of the story, the Librarian, Helen, who helps him see his true value. Her quiet, non-judgmental, accepting, self-assured and powerful love for Will is apparent in their one to one conversations. She has insights into our hero, that he himself is unable to see. It is through her gentle guidance that Will is better able to understand himself which enables him to find the love(s) he never knew he was looking for.

I found some of the more intriguing moments in the book were the quiet back and forths between Will and Helen. Through Scheff’s beautiful descriptions, I felt myself a welcomed voyeur, sitting in their warm Boston apartment, watching the almost waltz like exchanges of kindness, Asian cooking and friendship.

I hope that people read this book with an open mind, open heart and through the openness of these characters obtain a better understanding of themselves, as this reader has…

  1. I am just now reading your book on love. I watched a video on vaccines that a friend of mine posted on FB on our local VAXXED page. I am so intrigued by all you have to say! I have 2 kids 24 and 20 who were never vaccinated and never once saw a pediatrician. We were lucky to find a homeopath early on in Austin Tx. She assured me then in 1993 that we were making the right decision not to vaccinate. I did some research and read magazine articles on the dangers of vaccines that were handed down by other parents in our planned community of meditators but had no internet at the time we were deciding. My kids are very healthy and have been for the most part. Ah! And no antibiotics either! Or any meds for that matter…I’m so proud of that. Against my better judgement my daughter did take one after having been to Fiji and getting Giardia. She had the runs for a solid month and was done. Anyway, I am grateful for your work and will send a donation to support. Thank you thank you..~Kate
