The Hard Truth About Sunshine AMAZON

New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett has written her most gripping and poignant tale yet. Provocatively heart-breaking, audaciously irreverent and romantically fulfilling, The Hard Truth About Sunshine exposes just how very thin the line is between a full life and an empty existence.

Despite having narrowly escaped death's clutches, Christopher Barlow is grateful for nothing. His capacity to love has been crushed. He hates everyone and everything, completely unable to see past the gray stain of misery that coats his perception of the world. It's only after he involuntarily joins a band of depressed misfits who are struggling to overcome their own problems, does Christopher start to re-evaluate his lot in life.

What could they possibly learn from one another? How could they possibly help each other to heal? And the question that Christopher asks himself over and over again... can he learn to love again?

He's about to find out as he embarks upon a cross country trip with a beautiful woman who is going blind, a boy with terminal cancer, and an abuse victim who can't decide whether she wants to live or die.

Four people with nothing in common but their destination. They will encounter adventure, thrills, loss and love. And within their travels they will learn the greatest lesson of all.

The hard truth about sunshine...
Warning: This book deals with some tough issues including suicide and sexual abuse.

MY REVIEW:

OMG. I knew this was going to be a departure from her usual books, but this book blew me away.

What a gut-wrenching book. From the first page of the book I was hooked. I totally fell in love with the characters in this book.

This is a story of love, loss, redemption and learning some hard truths about life and death.

One of my favorite books lately has been Bright Side by Kim Holden and this book reminded me of that one, not the story itself as they are very different, but the style of writing and the meaning of life and death this is portrayed in both books. I had an "ugly cry" and some laughs. This will be a book I recommend over and over to everyone. I don't feel this book has a specific type of person that would read it, but rather it has something for everyone.

Ugh, it is so hard to put into words how wonderful I felt after reading this book.

Sum it up to say that this book is the story of 4 individual who are in group therapy that take a road trip together and learn life lessons along the way.

Loved, loved, loved this book.

5+++++++ stars

If you hadn't planned on reading this book, I would suggest you put it on your TBR pile and read it soon.
