Bitter,Sweet by Laura Best

Posted on: February 13, 2011

This well written, engaging story demonstrates the resilience and resourcefulness of children when faced with hardship. Four children, left to fend for themselves in rural Nova Scotia, will do anything to stay together as a family. As the title suggests, the story is both heartbreaking and satisfying. The author has a delightful way of drawing the reader in to the thoughts and feelings of the children and has you cheering for them right to the end. I highly recommend this book for all ages.

Great review for a wonderful book.

I read Bitter, Sweet, also, and agree entirely with your review. Laura did a great job of writing. Blessings to you…

It is wonderful to hear from Laura Best fans.

Nice review, Darlene. Also nice to meet you. Laura did a fantastic job with Bitter, Sweet. BTW – The story that went with the review – totally true. Dave

This sounds great. Thanks for sharing, Darlene.

Sounds like a good book for my grandaughter, Jasmine. I like to buy books for her, written by Canadian authors with Canadian settings.

This is a very concise, honest review of a book well worth the read, and by a talented Canadian author.
