The Hard Truth About Sunshine by Sawyer Bennett

New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett has written her most gripping and poignant tale yet. Provocatively heart-breaking, audaciously irreverent and romantically fulfilling, The Hard Truth About Sunshine exposes just how very thin the line is between a full life and an empty existence.

Despite having narrowly escaped death's clutches, Christopher Barlow is grateful for nothing. His capacity to love has been crushed. He hates everyone and everything, completely unable to see past the gray stain of misery that coats his perception of the world. It's only after he involuntarily joins a band of depressed misfits who are struggling to overcome their own problems, does Christopher start to re-evaluate his lot in life.

What could they possibly learn from one another? How could they possibly help each other to heal? And the question that Christopher asks himself over and over again... can he learn to love again? 

He's about to find out as he embarks upon a cross country trip with a beautiful woman who is going blind, a boy with terminal cancer, and an abuse victim who can't decide whether she wants to live or die. 

Four people with nothing in common but their destination. They will encounter adventure, thrills, loss and love. And within their travels they will learn the greatest lesson of all. 

The hard truth about sunshine...

5 Sunshine Stars

I won't even bother reading the synopsis, I'll just dive right in when it comes to a book written by Sawyer Bennett and I'm never disappointed! And The Hard Truth About Sunshine certainly did not disappoint me. I was hooked in the first chapter and I couldn't read fast enough to get to the end. 

This book pulled every emotion out of me: anger, annoyance, laughter, love and heartbreak. Each of these characters were special in their own way and the story behind each of them really made this book!

This book is told through Christoper Barlow's POV. He's one angry S.O.B. He's a war vet, who hates the world. He hates people and has no remorse about it. He's been struggling with his injuries since he's been released from the hospital/rehab. And to stay out of trouble, he's been sent to mandatory group therapy. It's where three, very different individuals will change his life forever. But not so fast, the man is still pissed off at life and loves to take it out on the three of them. 

It all begins on a road trip. A road trip that Christopher reluctantly agreed take with his group therapy "friends." And "friends" is in quotes, because the four of them have absolutely nothing in common, but all need some sort of help. Jillian is beautiful, sweet and positive about life, even though she is slowly going blind. There's something about Jillian that has Christopher intrigued. Then there's sweet, young Connor. The boy is dying and this trip is his last adventure. And Barb, goth girl, who is not only angry, but also suicidal. You think a cross-country road trip with the four of them would be a complete disaster, but it ends up changing them. 

I laughed, cried and was overcome by emotions throughout the journey of these four individuals. They started as strangers, but soon found themselves beginning to understand each other, about themselves and what the future holds for them when they return home. The Hard Truth About Sunshine  is a well written book that deals with a lot pain and dark issues. It's an inspiring book that helps you look at truth about sunshine
