Amazon Review by Sandy Steele
“Cracks in the Sidewalk,” is a thoughtful and remarkable novel! The book covers over twenty years and every human emotion imaginable. Lust, hate, unrequited love and unending love, all wrapped together into this novel from a spiritual and extraordinary writer, Bette Crosby. The story includes both a deeply troubled marriage with an almost perfect marriage and everything in between. In the beginning, the author slowly weaves her tale about relationships gone haywire. After reading the first third of the book, I couldn’t put it down until I finished the last two thirds, smiling and weeping along the way.
Written in both first and third person perspectives, I’ve never read a book quite like this before. The character’s dialogue and descriptions are immaculate and allows one to completely enter the mind and thoughts of the specific characters. As Ms. Crosby writes, “Life is a sidewalk to Heaven with cracks along the way.” If you like books about undying love for family, this novel is absolutely for you!
