The Sweet By and By

The Sweet By and By by Sara Evans & Rachel Hauck

Songbird Novel 1, a redemptive story from multi-platinum recording artist Sara Evans.

Jade Fitzgerald left the pain of her past in the dust when she headed out for college a decade ago. Now she’s thriving in her career and glowing in the light of Max Benson’s love.

But then Jade’s hippie mother, Beryl Hill, arrives in Whisper Hollow, Tennessee, for Jade’s wedding along with Willow, her wild younger sister. Their arrival forces Jade to throw open the dark closets of her past–the insecurity of living with a restless, wandering mother, the silence of her absent father, and the heart-ripping pain of first-love’s rejection.

Turns out Beryl has a secret of her own. She needs reconciliation with her oldest daughter before illness takes her life. In the final days leading to the wedding, Jade meets the One who shows her that the past has no hold on her future. With a little grace, they’ll meet in the middle, maybe even before that sweet by and by.

There is something I have to tell you, I didn’t know there was a Songbird series. In fact, when I heard that Sara Evans wrote Softly and Tenderly, the second in the series, I latched onto it and read it first.

I enjoyed the Sweet By and By just as much as I did Softly and Tenderly. They are story lines that regular folks can relate to. Of course, my life didn’t turn out anything like Jade’s, but I could totally see my self doing something she would.

This is a Christian Fiction Chick Lit kind of book, but it isn’t going to thump you in the head with a Bible. However, it does give a great message we probably all need to hear from time to time.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did, and that you are able to do it right by reading them in order.

  1. She collaborated with Christian romance writer Rachel Hauck on the book The Sweet By and By in 2010… Softly Tenderly is the second installment of that novel following the journey of character Jade Freedom Fitzgerald of Whisper Hollow Tenn…Read a chapter from her book Softly and Tenderly below…The Bensons foyer was cold. Jade shivered as she followed June inside carrying a few of the bags and boxes her mother-in-law had collected from three days of shopping in Atlanta with Honey… Constance? June clicked on the table lamp.
