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.
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.
Four people with nothing in common but their destination. 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.
Going into this book I already knew that Sawyer Bennett was switching her writing up from the norm, but man it was so much more than i was expecting.
The Hard Truth About Sunshine was a one off story about hope, loss, death and love and it blew me away. within this book there is so much hidden depth there’s a kind of sad beauty to it, each of the main characters lives have taken them through a event making for a big life change, i found myself falling in love with these four amazing characters.
The book is told from Christopher’s POV so we get into his mind in great depth, you can feel the bitterness within him, hes a class A jerk at times and quiet stand offish.
Im struggling to put word to this review to explain how great it is and how it is a must read. The hard truth about sunshine is raw and flawed yet so beautiful you cannot stop reading.
