Share Article

A troubled Southerner feels compelled to explore his family roots in this new novel released by Dog Ear Publishing. His trip across the ocean leads to some surprising discoveries.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Lies We Were Told” by Leslie MacDill.

Aidan’s search leads him from the South to Great Britain and Northern Ireland, where he must confront his own demons – in this world and beyond.

When an American begins searching for his heritage, he uncovers dark mysteries starting with his dead father and stretching back more than 200 years. Aidan MacEwan stars in this new book that features a tale of deception that throws the unquestioned MacEwan family history into chaos. Aidan’s search leads him from the South to Great Britain and Northern Ireland, where he must confront his own demons – in this world and beyond – with the help of an old Caribbean healer and others he encounters.

In “Lies We Were Told,” the author draws on his own Scots-Irish heritage in telling the story of Aidan, a writer and devoted music lover who begins his quest by meeting his half-brother Gordon in a British pub. A health scare introduces him to Jasmine, a nurse who recognizes that Aidan is more than he appears and his very soul is in danger. She and her grandmother, a priestess, have been waiting to help him. Gordon, concerned about Aidan’s project, has him investigated and turns up some troubling things. Relationships become complicated, as does the research when Aidan learns his ancestral village in Ireland was destroyed, reportedly by a witch, and people around him start dying. Will Aidan be able to complete his quest and gain happiness or will disaster strike?

Author Leslie MacDill began life as an Air Force brat, moving to Okinawa, Japan, from the South for the first three years of his life when his father was deployed there. His career choices have ranged from judicial assistant to 18-wheeler driver, professional musician and on-air radio announcer. The accomplished cook has a degree from Florida State University and has practiced Tibetan healing medicine, Zen Buddhism, shamanism and advanced energy medicine.
