I truly believe – #bookreviewer Salute

This is my first time reading a work by Bette Lee Crosby, but it will not be the last. I truly believe she will become one of our most renowned writers of thought provoking historical fiction.

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 one thing that hit me hard is the realization at just how recent these events were. I would strongly suggest this as reading material for junior or high school students. It would make a wonderfully enlightening addition to any teacher’s curriculum.

Note that while this is technically Book 3, it is not necessary to read the other books in the series prior to this one. In fact, I wasn’t aware it was a part of a series until the end! I found myself thinking I would love to know the story behind another character’s life only to find it had already been written. I can’t wait to go back and read these prior gems.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
