So back to Sweet Hope. I already warned Tillie that there will be cursing involved. And she told be to go for it. So I’m warning you, I might go for it.
So what can I say. Ummm...chapter 18, powerful. It gutted me. It made me think. It was one of the breaking points of the book. There are a few. There are a lot of interconnected storylines and relationships within this book. All between the two main characters, Aly and Elpi and the extended family/friends. But really, if you know anything about the Sweet Home series, you know that even though they are friends, they are family. They made their own family with those around them.
The bonus chapter. Well that made it all ok. There is a speech during it that sums up the series perfectly. It made me cry. Honest to god crocodile tears running down my face. My ipad died and you should have seen me. I almost broke it. But then I picked my phone up right away and finished reading one of the most amazing books I’ve ever read and said goodbye to one of my most favorite cast of characters in one of my most favorite series I’ve read.
As sad as it is to say goodbye to the Sweet Home characters, I feel at ease with it. Tille Cole did an amazing job a wrapping it up in a powerful way. The healing, the friendships, the commitments. You know they go on.
