Baby Girl – #bookreviewer Salute

Barb from Goodreads says about Baby Girl:

This wonderful novel by Bette Lee Crosby is #4 in the “Memory House” series but it reads like a prequel. The story centers on Cheryl Ann, who’s being pressured to get an abortion by the selfish man in her life–and who finds a way to make a choice based on the love only a mother can know. She finds a strength within that belies her early tendency to let herself be pushed around by a man who doesn’t have her best interest at heart.

“Baby Girl” explores the difference between true love and infatuation as well as the powerful love a mother can have for her child. Crosby is at her best with characters who seem so real, they could be living in the house next door.

This review is based on an advance reader copy of the novel, via Socialbook.

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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