The Sweet By and By

The Sweet By and By by Sarah Evans describes a hurting woman who is trying to do what so many people do. We go on a journey with Jade. Jade is trying reach for her future without letting go of her past. She looking forward to marriage with Max, but hasn’t told him all of the hurtful things of her past. She wants to forget it instead of deal with it, but, of course, she ends up having to deal with it instead.

The Sweet By and By is a sweet book, but in no way did I get an impression that it was Christian from reading it. It should not be marketed as a Christian book, there were some very faint religious tones, but even those were general and could appeal to a large non-Christian audience. I was highly disappointed. If this book were written devoutly Christian, with specific references to the redemptive power of Jesus Christ, then I would have much better enjoyed this book!
