Summary
A True Story Based on Lies addresses the universal issues of class discrimination, male oppression, and female servitude through dual narratives of spellbinding power.

When a child, Aura Olivia, is born from this union, she is brought up as the daughter of the house. As the novel unfolds, the "true" story gradually emerges
