Cafe Lily's review:
This was an interesting book to read and I enjoyed it very much, even though sometimes the plot was a little confusing as the chapters fluctuate back and forth from past to present. Without giving too much away, I will say that parts of the ending didn’t go like I had hoped or expected. Ally Green is a very believable character and I liked that this book focused on an older woman and her imperfections. Although she’s lived a very full and interesting life, she has her regrets. Her vagabond ways haven’t proven to be very fruitful and now that she’s longing to settle down and finally put down some roots, its going to be harder than she thinks.
The first book of Nicole’s that I read was The Inheritance of Beauty and that is still my favorite book of hers so far.
You can see my review of that here: http://redlilycafe.blogspot.com/2011/03/inheritance-of-beauty.html
I enjoy Nicole’s style of writing and how her southern roots shine through in her stories.

About the book:
Three lives are bound by a single book . . . and the cleansing waters of Molasses Creek.
Having traveled to the ends of the earth as a flight attendant, Ally Green has finally returned to the Lowcountry to bury her father as well as the past. But Vesey Washington is still living across the creek, and theirs is a complicated relationship‹he was once her best friend . . . and also part of the reason she¹s stayed away so long. When Ally discovers a message her father left behind asking her to quit running, it seems her past isn't through with her yet.
As Ally¹s wandering spirit wrestles with a deep longing to flee again, a young woman on the other side of the world escapes her life of slavery in the rock quarries of Nepal. A mysterious sketchbook leads Sunila Kunari to believe there¹s more to her story than she¹s ever been told, and she¹s determined to follow the truth wherever it leads her.
A deep current intertwines the lives of these three souls, and a destiny of freedom, faith, and friendship awaits them all on the banks of Molasses Creek.
