Beyond Molasses Creek - Nicole Seitz

Back Cover...

Having traveled to the ends of the earth as a flight attendant, Ally Green has finally returned to the Lowcountry 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 Kunair 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.

My take...

Have you ever read the back of a book, started right in with the first chapter, then several chapters in realize that you made a huge misconception about the book?  That was my case with this one.  For some reason, I got in my head that Ally was a young woman, between the age of 30-40.  Come to find out, she is 60 years old and not what I envisioned.  Now I don't know about you, but once I have something in my head, it's hard to replace it with the correct information!

That said, this was an OK read for me, not stellar, but it was good.  This was the first book I have read by this author, and I would definitely read any of her other ones I came across.  

I give this book 4 stars.
