If you’re looking for a book you won’t want to put down, it’s Beyond Molasses Creek. Nicole Seitz takes a unique idea and weaves it into a delightful tale that is a quick and easy read. I whizzed through it and enjoyed every page.

Author, Nicole Seitz

To tell you what I liked best about this novel would mean giving away the primary plot. The story begins with Ally Green in her 60’s returning home after the death of her father. Flashbacks tell you how she has lived her life. Gradually you learn she’s faced disappointment and that there was a terrible tragedy she’s tried to overcome, but it’s not clear what that is at first. 

A parallel story evolves with events in the life of Sunila, who has grown up in a rock quarry in Nepal. The harshness of her life there, her courage and the ultimate outcome for her future will inspire you.

As a person who raises and loves birds, my only criticism would be that I wish Ms. Seitz had researched the birds she mentions in the book with more accuracy. I recognized a few faux pas about the behavior of some. However, most people won’t notice it, and I still greatly enjoyed this book filled with emotion, intrigue and believable characters.

The book’s Christian outlook is handled in a believable fashion with sensible characters who live and love as real people. Although a Christian novel, this one is not noticeably preachy, nor does it lose track of the story in an effort to convert, as some seem to.

I highly recommend Beyond Molasses Creek by Nicole Seitz and expect to read more of her novels.
