The Best of Me

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.

First just let me say that you will need plenty of tissues on hand for this beautifully written story. If you are like me sinus pills as well as the continued tears and sorrow played havoc. This story was such a roller-coaster of emotional drama. I cried like a big baby right from the beginning. There were ups and downs, twists and turns. There are highs to go with the lows. Sunshine and gray clouds.

I adored the multiple POVs here. There was more than one story line here but the most gripping was the Carlie Jo Duroy being orphaned at the tender age of 7 (almost 8). For the past 2 years, young Carlie took care of her mother. After getting off of a Greyhound bus in Blessings, GA, Shirley and Carlie Duroy make their way across the street to the police station. Cue the tears!!!!

There was another story line about two childhood sweethearts that both eventually return back to town due to sickness and death in both of their families. Read how these two sweethearts find their way back to each other. This story line had just a little sexy to it.

I just adored this story and highly recommend it to anyone. Just remember the full box of tissues will be required!

A moving story

Have tissues in hand! The first chapter is a tearjerker. Once again the story takes place in Blessings, GA and is said to be the final in the series, but what about the next generation? The characters are back from previous books, but can be read as a standalone. The focus is time is on the Butterman’s, Ruby is unaware that she has been made guardian of a sweet little girl. Her former employee, Shirley is dying and with the last of her strength takes her daughter to Blessings to inform Ruby of her guardianship. She makes it into the police station and dies in Carlie’s arms. No 8 year old child should have to go thru that. The story is of Carlie adjusting to her new life, working through her fears, trusting and learning to love total strangers.
As always there are other stories interwoven, growing up and 2nd chance love for high school sweethearts. Well done! Very moving storyline, a real page turner. Thank you NetGalley for this ARC. I am voluntarily posting an honest review after reading an Advance Reader Copy of this story. #NetGalley #TheBestofMe
