Ally Green has traveled the world as a flight attendant, but the death of her father call her back home and she thinks she might stay. On the other side of the world a young woman in India, armed with a mysterious sketch book, is looking for the truth about her life and where she came from. Both of these women must confront their past in order to live in the present and face the future.
Beyond Molasses Creek by Nicole Seitz takes these two seemingly far apart stories and weaves them beautifully together. While it seems a bit of stretch sometimes both of these women are ultimately looking for the same thing. They want to be freed from their past. They want to find something to believe in and they need to find a friend to lean on through it all.
I really enjoyed reading this book. While the story seemed a bit farfetched at times for me, it was wonderfully written. I think there are many woman like Ally Green out there who are trying to hide from their past by keeping busy. In the end, you are only hiding from the truth. I did feel a little unsatisfied with the ending though. I feel like there were some lose ends that could have been tied up a little bit neater. But, I still enjoyed reading Beyond Molasses Creek.
