Packed full of beautiful lines – The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd

Susan on Goodreads says:
First line—’I have heard it said that a man who cries is spineless, a weakling not worthy of his salt, but this I can tell you: a man who has never shed a tear has not yet learned to love.’

I just love the wisdom and insight in this first line. Like all of Bette’s book, this one is packed full of beautiful lines and wise advice. I was lucky enough to get a chance to be an early reader of The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd and whenever I get my hands on one of Bette’s books, I drop everything to read them. And as luck would have it, I had the day off from work that day, so I was able to devour, yet savor this lovely book.

This is book #4 in the Wyattsville series and I always love it when I get to go back to Wyattsville. All the wonderful people that I have come to know and love are there and I get to spend time with all of them again. In this story, we meet Cyrus and his wife, Ruth as they go through the trials and tribulations put before them. Cyrus lives with the regrets that he has and can’t see all of the good in his life. As the two of them make their way to Wyattsville, will he finally be able to realize that he has to let go of those regrets to finally be happy?

‘I regret all those years of thinking I had a bunch of regrets.’

Bette has done it again! She has written another wonderful, gentle story full of loveable characters. She writes such beautiful words and imparts so much wisdom in her stories, wisdom that we can all learn from. Thank you Bette, for another great trip back to Wyattsville!

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."
