I truly believe – #bookreviewer Salute

I truly believe – #bookreviewer Salute This is my first time reading a work by Bette Lee Crosby, but it will not be the last.

This is a tale of a man of color living in the deep south during a painful part of our history when non-whites were seen as a lower form of being. Passing Through Perfect brings the emotions and acceptance of “what is” to life. The.....

A #MustRead – #bookreviewer Salute

A #MustRead – #bookreviewer Salute Passing through Perfect was both tragic and heartwarming. I loved how well the characters were written. I felt like I was part of the story. I smiled and laughed, then cried. It is so tragic that the color of a person’s skin would mean that they are any less of a person than someone else. Benjamin was an amazing man. He took the knocks that life gave him and kept going. He could have become bitter and mean. He choose to take care.....

Great Story of Overcoming – #bookreviewer Salute

Great Story of Overcoming – #bookreviewer Salute If you enjoy post Civil War Southern historical fiction, this is for you! I was nervous it was going to be an Oprah book club type book full of depressing stories, it wasn’t. Yes, the main characters have a hard time in the poor, segregated south, but there is also so much happiness. There are some really great characters to love of both races. I really enjoyed it although I was disturbed by some parts. The sad parts.....

Enjoyable Read – #bookreviewer Salute

Enjoyable Read – #bookreviewer Salute This heart warming book was so much fun to read. It didn’t make me rush through it to see what happened next, yet it kept my interest enough to keep reading leisurely.

Elaine reviews Spare Change – Reader Salute

Enjoy this review from Elaine on Goodreads about Spare Change! Elaine reviews Spare Change – Reader Salute Turn off your cell phone and butter up some popcorn when you read Spare Change because you’re reading a book you’ll swear some studio has already bought the rights to turn into a movie. I admit, I’m drawn to southern characters and southern tales and Ms. Crosby has cooked up a good one in Spare Change. The characters are fully developed and layered with endear.....

An Advance Review of Memory House – The Reader Salute

An Advance Review of Memory House – The Reader Salute by Cathy on Goodreads I was blessed to be able to read this book ahead of time with an advanced reader copy.

Ophelia owns a beautiful bed and breakfast. It’s not advertised and is left to chance that Annie happens to find t.....
