WOW Women on Writing – The Reader Salute
WOW, Women on Writing, is a wonderful place to find new books to read. They feature women’s fiction from some of the best authors. I’m lucky they consider my books worthy of being reviewed. Here’s their review of my new release, Passing through Perfect:
It wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t start by saying I am a huge Bette Lee Crosby fan, so I went into Passing through Perfect knowing I would absolutely love this book. However, Passing through Perfect is unlike any of the other books Crosby has written. In Passing through Perfect Crosby writes in the voice of a young black man. This was definitely a stretch for Crosby, but I only know that because she said so herself.
If I didn’t know better, I would think Passing through Perfect was indeed written by a young black man. The characters were rich and believable, the settings and scenery were perfect to depict the living conditions during the mid-1940’s and once I picked up Passing through Perfect I couldn’t put it down. I was so drawn into the lives of Benjamin and Delia I finished the book the same evening I received it.
Passing through Perfect brought out so many emotions for me as a reader. The racism experienced by the main characters made me tense up and I was angry about the ignorance and injustice of the time. The love between Benjamin and Delia was so strong from the moment he laid eyes on her that my own pulse quickened with excitement about the thought of true love at first sight. These emotional ups and downs were felt throughout the book. I especially love the title of Passing through Perfect because I think we can all relate to a time in our lives that was so absolutely wonderful we wanted it to last forever.
This is definitely a book I would recommend to others; in fact I’ve already told a friend that she absolutely MUST read Passing through Perfect. Whether you’ve read the other books in the Wyattsville Series or not, you’ll find yourself drawn in and enjoying every turn of the page with this fabulous book. Thank you to Bette Lee Crosby for sharing her storytelling time and talents.
