Book Review: The Sweet By and By
The Sweet By and By
by: Sara Evans with Rachel Hauck
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Audience: Teen through Adult
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Jade Fitzgerald is smart, successful, sweet, and is engaged to the man she loves. They agree on almost everything, especially keeping "the past in the past". As the wedding draws closer, can her past really be kept under wraps, especially when she invites her hippie mother to the wedding and she arrives early? Jade finds out that sometimes we must look back to move forward, as this is where true happiness begins.
A beautiful story about secrets and mistakes, love and forgiveness, and faith. Sara Evens created a wonderful cast of characters and situations that were so real and believable that I found myself both laughing and crying throughout the story. What an amazing tale of what happens when secrets are kept and how they will haunt you until you meet them head on and deal with them. This is one book that needs to be read by every mother and daughter, sister and girlfriend as there are lessons to be learned from the pages of this book. I look forward to seeing more by this amazing author!
