Book Review- The Sweetest Thing

The Sweetest Thing was indeed a sweet book. The author does an excellent job weaving a story, developing characters, and keeping the readers interest from beginning to end.

The story is about two girls, who are from different worlds, yet find themselves developing a deep and lasting friendship. From the beginning of the book, the author tangles you in a web of mystery and loss. Both girls struggle to define who they are as they go through adolescence in the wealthy south during the Great Depression. One finds herself newly experiencing wealth and the other experiencing the loss of wealth. Both are struggling to find peace with the results of choices their parents have made. Both find deeper faith and true friendship in the process.

I definitely recommend this read for lovers of historical fiction. It is easy to get lost in this tale and enraptured with the characters and story line therein.

*I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
