About the Book:

Three lives are bound by a single book . . . and the cleansing waters of Molasses Creek.

 Having traveled to the ends of the earth as a flight attendant, Ally Green has finally returned to the Low country to bury her father as well as the past. But Vesey Washington is still living across the creek, and theirs is a complicated relationship—he was once her best friend . . . and also part of the reason she’s stayed away so long. When Ally discovers a message her father left behind asking her to quit running, it seems her past isn’t through with her yet.
As Ally’s wandering spirit wrestles with a deep longing to flee again, a young woman on the other side of the world escapes her life of slavery in the rock quarries of Nepal. A mysterious sketchbook leads Sunila Kunari to believe there’s more to her story than she’s ever been told, and she’s determined to follow the truth wherever it leads her.

 A deep current intertwines the lives of these three souls, and a destiny of freedom, faith, and friendship awaits them all on the banks of Molasses Creek.

My Thoughts:

It’s not often we realize certain regrets until it’s too late.  In Beyond Molasses Creek, Ally and Sunilla deal with sorrow as their past collide with their future, giving the reader a deep understanding of the characters inward struggles as they deal with love, loss, regret and forgiveness.  Though this book will tug at your heart strings, there is a silver lining.  Located within the pages is a story that celebrates life and encourages the reader through the hope and faith God brings.

The novel has some pretty significant and deep issues contained within the story.  It definitely surprised me at points with elements I did not expect to read.  I enjoyed the authors writing style and the ease of flow in this novel.  The characters are well developed which enabled me to better understand them and their past.  It’s a wonderful tale of Low country.  Intriguing and fast paced, this novel has a little something for everyone. I would recommend the read!
