review 1: This modern retelling of the Psyche and Eros myth, is also a realistic look at the life of two sisters. Both were local celebrities (child stars) in Sugarland Texas, a town outside of Houston. When the story begins, both sisters are now housewives, still living in Sugarland. Their marriages are not what they use to be. Though they have very different difficulties in their marriages, both of their marriages are stifling them at this point and they don’t know what to do about it. This is a story of self-discovery and growth. The sisters find out what they are really capable of and what they really want out of life. The author, Joni Rodgers, was herself a child performer, born into a family of bluegrass/gospel musicians. From those days, she has grown up and gone on to beco... moreme a New York Times bestselling author. The book, Sugarland, was a PMA Benjamin Franklin Award finalist. In Sugarland, Joni Rodger shows her skill at writing emotion. She’s crafted an earnest and heartwarming novel, and at times a tear jerker. I cried at parts of the book. The characters are fleshed out and you have to keep reading to find out what happens to them. The story is an emotionally compelling page turner. I highly recommend it.
review 2: This was one of the better books I've read of late. One of the reviews on the back compares it to "the best country music," and I can think of no better way to describe the feel of this story. Our two protagonists were very believable and easy to relate. Many of the characters were full of surprises. A great book about wanting what you've got and simultaneously not settling for less than you deserve. less
