The Hard Truth About Sunshine by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What can I say about this book except…OMGEE! Every once in awhile I’ll come across a book that makes me cry like a baby, ugly, ugly cry. Yes, this is one of those books! It is a love story but it’s SOOO much more than that. It’s a story of redemption, the pursuit of love, happiness, forgiveness, acceptance and hope. Christopher is a very negative jerk. Maybe rightfully so. Jillian’s contented attitude towards life is what allows her to push through all of the ugliness in Christopher’s head to his softly beating heart. Along with Barb, the Goth Chick and Conner, the Dead Kid, the journey to find happiness is extremely painful. This is a book that will stay with me long after the last page is read. When you pick up this book, remember that you have to go through the darkness to find the light (cliche, I know but totally worth it!). Christopher, Jillian, Connor and Barb’s story is awe-inspiring and beautifully ugly…thank you, Sawyer Bennett! Told from Christopher’s POV with a sad but happy ending (you’ll have to read it to understand that!). I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
We are very excited to bring you this stunning cover from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett. THE HARD TRUTH ABOUT SUNSHINE is her most gripping and poignant tale yet and will release on MARCH 28!
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.
An angry, bitter amputee.
An optimist losing her eyesight.
A dying kid.
A suicidal thief.
Four people with nothing in common but their destination.
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.
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.
