Crosby is a master storyteller – The Reader Salute
The advanced reviews from bloggers for Passing through Perfect has been amazing. Here is one from Elizabeth at Silver’s Reviews. I also had the pleasure of meeting her in person when I went to NYC for the BEA (Book Expo of America).
PASSING THROUGH PERFECT is another perfectly wonderful novel by Bette Lee Crosby. Ms. Crosby is a master storyteller.
Her books grab your attention, reel you in, and won’t let you go. Her books are always ones that are difficult to put down. PASSING THROUGH PERFECT is no exception. Ms. Crosby’s books always have a cozy feeling, always remind you of what is important in life, and always have something to ponder.
The main characters in PASSING THROUGH PERFECT, Benjamin and Delia, are hard-working farmers even though Delia thinks Benjamin can do better. We follow Benjamin and Delia from their giddy, in-love young years to their mature love and are with them as they endure the hardships of being black and living in the South in the 1940’s.
Ms. Crosby’s characters ooze with authenticity in this book and all of her books. The characters in PASSING THROUGH PERFECT are all lovable and warm. You will share their sorrows and their joys as they experience them. You will be drawn into their lives and into the story and will be living the story along with the characters. You will cry along with the characters, and you will also be happy for them when they are happy.
Don’t miss reading yet another marvelous book by Ms. Crosby.
