Captivating But a Devastating Story


The Deception Within is a really intriguing story that captured my attention from start to finish. I don’t read much, but this one truly grabbed my attention. With how much love, support, and trust the Reyes family received growing up, the conclusion comes as a complete surprise. They learned the same values that Crispin and Remedios taught their children—to always love one another, love God above all and trust in Him, but what happens in the end, was unexpected. They were the envy of everyone with such an ideal family, until…

How were they broken by greed, envy, and jealousy given that they were raised to be God-fearing individuals. What the antagonist did to her 90-year-old father until he passed away at age 103 is the story’s most devastating scene. It is unbelievable and most heartbreaking.

I applaud the author for having the guts to tell the world about her real-life experience. This story contains lessons that everyone could learn from. Everyone should read this.
