Sweet Water Christina Baker Kline Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train, and the critically acclaimed author of Bird in Hand and The Way Life Should Be, comes a novel about buried secrets and the redemptive power of forgiveness—includes a special PS section featuring insights, interviews, and more.

Cassie Simon is a struggling artist living in New York City.  When she receives a call from a magistrate in Sweetwater, TN, telling her she has inherited sixty acres of land from her grandfather, whom she never knew, she takes it as a sign: it’s time for a change.  She moves into the house where her mother, Ellen, was born—and where she died tragically when Cassie was three.

From the moment she arrives in Sweetwater, Cassie is overwhelmed by the indelible mark her mother’s memory had left behind.  As she delves into the thicket of mystery that surrounds her mother’s death, Cassie begins to understand the desperate measures the human heart is capable of.

  • Flat

    By AshCimm
    I expected a better ending. Things built and slowly fizzled.
  • Great Story, Terrible Ending

    By SaltedCarolyn
    I really enjoyed reading this book until the end. The end was terrible. She'd created such wonderful characters and then phoned in the ending. I doubt I'll read any other of her books because now I'm just unsatisfied. Shame, I did really like her characters.
  • Very good book, but....

    By MamaofBenandChris
    This book was well written, had suspense, drama, and a message. The author left you asking questions. Not good. The problem was the ending or lack thereof.

    I loved this book. Clyde and Cassie are 2 of the most interesting characters I've ever read. It was not one of the stories that you knew what was going to happen before it did. Great Job!
  • Ho hum

    I was really into the story and enjoying it and then it just ended. I wanted to read more. I would read a sequel to the story if she wrote one. But if that was the ending, I'm disappointed.

    I really enjoyed reading Sweet Water by Christina Baker Cline. I liked the way the story was told by two of the main characters. The story line evolved nicely but I was a little surprised at how suddenly the novel ended. I really wasn't ready for the story to end and wanted to read more although it ended the way it should have. I will definitely read more of Christina Kline's books. Thanks for the opportunity to read and review it.
  • Loved everything but the end

    By Erinashley7548
    I loved reading this book, but the ending was a big let down. It felt like the author rushed the ending. I did like how the story was told through two different perspectives. I haven't read many books like it. I just wish the ending was different.

    It was like reading 2 books at the same time. Such a captivating story! Once I started reading it was hard to put it down!
