Christina Baker Kline wrote Orphan Train, which was a book that will stay with me for a long time. I’m curious to read more of her book and see if they are just as good. I bought Sweet Water when it was on sale though BookBub and think it will make a good choice for our May Online Book Club.
Here is the Goodreads summary:
When a grandfather she never knew bequeaths her a house and 60 acres of land in Sweetwater, Tenn., a restless young artist leaves New York to recover her past and rethink her future. Cassie Simon’s mother Ellen died when Cassie was only three; raised in Boston by her grieving father, she never knew her maternal relatives. Unprepared for the thick veil of mystery that surrounds them, Cassie is especially bewildered by her brusque grandmother, whom rumor credits with hiding a terrible secret about Ellen’s death. In alternating sections told from their respective points of view, Cassie and her grandmother fight their separate battles to cope with the truth about the tragedy.
