Published by Thomas Nelson and provided free for review, “Beyond Molasses Creek” by Nicole Seitz is a compelling story line. Ally returns home to bury her father and tells us her story starting from the time she was a child to bring us up-to-date. She recounts her reason for leaving and shows us why she has decided to stop travelling the world and make Molasses Creek her home once again. She reminds us why friendships are important and take work to keep. She also shows us that trust in God is necessary and even when it looks like all is lost God is still in control.

Though overall this is a compelling story of love, heartbreak and redemption showing the thread of God working in lives around the world, this reviewer nearly stopped reading the book after a few chapters. The intermittent flashes of a secondary story were confusing and didn’t seem to fit. It is important to note that what seems to be a secondary story is really “the story” and if you don’t choose to ignore the author’s style and finish the book you will miss a heartbreaking, rewarding story. A cursory glance of other books by Nicole Seitz show that the “style of writing” is usual for this author and unfortunately are written in a style of which I am not a fan.
