Release with Review:: The Hard Truth About Sunshine by Sawyer Bennett



The Hard Truth About Sunshine AMAZON

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... Warning: This book deals with some tough issues including suicide and sexual abuse.

Man this one gutted me. This is the complete opposite that we are used to from Sawyer but damn if she didn't nail it. We experience a feeling of hope. We experience the need to feel accepted. We experience feeling lost in a world that may not be able to give you any answers.

We are placed in the mind of Christopher Barlow, wounded warrior, amputee, and sarcastic SOB that hates the world. He is on a trip with 3 others that have issues going on that need to be addressed.

This book isn't for the those looking for a light hearted funny read, don't get me wrong there are funny parts, I chuckled. But I was so heart broken in parts that I had to stop reading, take a break, and come back to it. The topics are heavy, the characters are real, and they work through their issues together.

Sawyer as always had great writing, the kind of writing that made you not want to stop reading, makes you wonder where is Christopher now and how is his sunshine.
