Review of Blueberry Hill by Brenda on The Reader Salute

Review of Blueberry Hill by Brenda on The Reader Salute

Brenda from Goodreads has written a wonderful review of Blueberry Hill:

Sisters Donna and Bette were like chalk and cheese – Donna was the wild one, the one who lived her life to the fullest, experiencing everything, scared of nothing. Bette was the cautious, practical one, the sister who thought of the consequences before the actions happened. But they were incredibly close; they loved each other deeply and whatever happened, that would never go away.

This story started when the girls were children – Donna was in school, rebellious, wanting to wear inappropriate clothing and fighting with her mother about it. Bette tried to be the peace-maker, as did their dad. And as they grew, smoking and drinking became the norm for Donna; entering adulthood, there were decisions made which would have long reaching and dire results…

This is a beautifully written novella with a heart wrenching story; a story of a deep love between sisters, and the heartbreak of tragedy. It is the story of decisions made and the regrets that follow; of family and the support base that exists between the extended members of that family.

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.
