Book Review: Beyond Molasses Creek

About the book:

Three lives are bound by a single book . . . and the cleansing waters of Molasses Creek.

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.

As Ally’s wandering spirit wrestles with a deep longing to flee again, a young woman on the other side of the world escapes her life of slavery in the rock quarries of Nepal. A mysterious sketchbook leads Sunila Kunari to believe there’s more to her story than she’s ever been told, and she’s determined to follow the truth wherever it leads her.

A deep current intertwines the lives of these three souls, and a destiny of freedom, faith, and friendship awaits them all on the banks of Molasses Creek.

My Thoughts:
I loved how the 3 characters in the book all came together, each had their own story, yet they all fit together so well, but I did get distracted by the fact that each chapter was about a different person, it disrupted the flow for me even though I did enjoy the story line.

All in all a good book, the characters were well developed and the plot was interesting.  I had fun learning about each of the 3 characters, their personalities, their past, their thoughts and feelings....I think this is a book I'll read again, because I think that the second time will flow a little better for me, and it was really quite enjoyable despite the disrupted feeling.
