Product Description

The Singleton family's fortunes seem unaffected by the Great Depression, and Perri--along with the other girls at Atlanta's elite Washington Seminary--lives a carefree life of tea dances with college boys, matinees at the cinema, and debut parties. But when tragedies strike, Perri is confronted with a world far different from the one she has always known.

At the insistence of her parents, Mary "Dobbs' Dillard, the daughter of an itinerant preacher, is sent from inner-city Chicago to live with her aunt and attend Washington Seminary, bringing confrontation and radical ideas. Her arrival intersects at the point of Perri's ultimate crisis, and the tragedy forges an unlikely friendship.

Publisher's Description

The Singleton family's fortunes seem unaffected by the Great Depression, and Perri--along with the other girls at Atlanta's elite Washington Seminary--lives a carefree life of tea dances with college boys, matinees at the cinema, and debut parties. But when tragedies strike, Perri is confronted with a world far different from the one she has always known.

At the insistence of her parents, Mary "Dobbs" Dillard, the daughter of an itinerant preacher, is sent from inner-city Chicago to live with her aunt and attend Washington Seminary, bringing confrontation and radical ideas. Her arrival intersects at the point of Perri's ultimate crisis, and the tragedy forges an unlikely friendship.

The Sweetest Thing tells the story of two remarkable young women--opposites in every way--fighting for the same goal: surviving tumultuous change.

    Well done Elizabeth Musser! This book was well written, engaging and filled with everything a good book should be. At first I wasn't sure what to expect, because it doesn't exactly qualify in my usual repertoire of historical romance, but in it's pages I found characters that became my friends. In the lives of these two young woman, innocence and virtue is tested, death and pain becomes a reality and life's prejudices and differences are realized. It's a story that rings true for us all whether it's in the 20th century or not.

    Highly recommended to those who love to get lost in a good, memorable piece of fiction.

    This book was such a pleasant surprise. I could hardly put it down. One of the best books I have read in a long time. I only paid $2.99 for it . What a gem.

    This book absolutely blew me away. I'm really not into the cheesy christian romance novels, and am very picky when I read christian fiction. However, this book was absolutely flawless. A definite must read! The thing I really appreciated about it, was that the romance was really sweet, but not cheesy, partly because that wasn't the main focus of the book, and I like that. I like it that it had a little bit of everything. Friendship, Faith, Romance, mystery. It was great. It also really made you think, it wasn't superficial and light, it really got to the heart of things. By far my favorite book ever.

    This book changed my life. If you love to read, need a good book to read, hate to read, or even if you don't know how to read and need someone to read it to you (in that case you wouldn't be reading this now...), buy this book! Elizabeth really rocked it with this book. So buy it now!

    This review was written for Sweetest Thing, The - eBook.
    Sometimes we're afraid to relive the pain of the past because it just hurts too much and we are afraid of how the people around us will react if they know the truth. I'm glad Mary Swan decides how important and healing telling the whole story to her daughter will not only help her but has life changing effects on her hurting daughter.
