Book Review: Beyond Molasses Creek by Nicole Seitz

Beyond Molasses CreekBeyond Molasses Creek by Nicole A. Seitz

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

From the Book:  Having traveled to the ends of the earth as a flight attendant, Ally Green has finally returned to the Lowcountry to bury her father as well as the past. But Vesey Washington is still living across the creek, and theirs is a complicated relationship--he was once her best friend . . . and also part of the reason she's stayed away so long. When Ally discovers a message her father left behind asking her to quit running, it seems her past isn't through with her yet.

My review: I think this was a touching story with wonderful characters and a believable storyline for the time setting.  I thought Ally was a little odd at first but as her story came out, I got a deeper understanding of her character.  I believe the pain she felt was something that was not unusual for the time that she grew up, but it was still sad.  I thought Vesey was a beautiful character and reminiscent of the way I viewed men from back then.  He was strong and faithful and I loved him.  He reminded me a lot of my grandfather.  My heart broke for Sunila and then rejoiced for her!  I would love to see a book about her "new" life!

Overall, I thought this was an interesting read.   I enjoyed the characters and the settings.  It's not one of the best of the recent books I have read, but it's a nice weekend read.
