Looking for a relaxing but thought-provoking novel to while away a winter’s afternoon? If so, I highly recommend “Beyond Molasses Creek” by Nicole Seitz. You’ll meet Ally Green, recently returned to an empty house and a lost love after her father’s death. After years of running from her past, can she put down roots in old, familiar soil? And, if she tries, will the ghosts of her past let her stay? As Ally says, “Sometimes stepping back in time is the only way for a girl to move forward.”
Skillfully woven into the story is another story of a young girl in India who sets out on the journey of a lifetime, uncertain if the truth she seeks will set her free or bring her disaster. No spoilers here, so where her story intersects with Ally’s is something you’ll have to find out for yourself! I really enjoyed this book but would have to say that the characters were much better drawn than the setting. Still, even with that minor flaw, it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon and I would encourage you to spend a little time “Beyond Molasses Creek.”
