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 of those who depended on him by honest hard work. Delia was a complex character. She seemed to feel the pains that came her way strongly. She was strong though and would eventually get back on track. Otis Church reminded of the grandfather we all wished we had. The Klaussner’s were an amazing couple. I loved how they looked at Benjamin’s heart and not his skin color.

After I finished this book, I wondered how many times I might have missed out on a friend because I judged by appearances instead of getting to know a person.

I highly recommend this book!

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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.
