Book Review: "The Sweet By and By" by Sara Evans and Rachel Hauck
Jade Fitzgerald left the pain of her past in the dust when she headed out for college a decade ago. Now she's thriving in her career and glowing in the light of Max Benson's love. But then Jade's hippie mother, Beryl Hill, arrives in Whisper Hollow, Tennessee, for Jade's wedding along with Willow, her wild younger sister.
Their arrival forces Jade to throw open the dark closets of her past -- the insecurity of living with a restless, wandering mother, the silence of her absent father, and the heart-ripping pain of first-love's rejection. Turns out Beryl has a secret of her own. She needs reconciliation with her oldest daughter before illness takes her life.
In the final days leading to the wedding, Jade meets the One who shows her that the past has no hold on her future. With a little grace, they'll meet in the middle, maybe even before that sweet by and by.
I read a review at a friend's blog Book Story. I had already read and reviewed Georgia on My Mind by Rachel Hauck due to her blog, so I was anxious to read this book and was THRILLED to see it available at a local library! I really enjoyed this book as well. I do have to say the ending was a little too perfect but WHO CARES once in awhile. I loved the twists and turns and surprises a long the way. I HIGHLY recommend this book. LOVED it!!
What a great debut for Sara Evans.
