Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of Orphan Train comes a novel about buried secrets and the redemptive power of forgiveness.
Cassie Simon is a struggling artist living in New York City. When she receives a call from a magistrate telling her she has inherited 60 acres of land in Sweetwater, Tennessee, from her grandfather, whom she never knew, she takes it as a sign: it's time for a change. She moves to the small Southern town where her mother, Ellen, grew up - and where she died tragically when Cassie was three.
From the moment she arrives in Sweetwater, Cassie is overwhelmed by the indelible mark her mother's memory left behind. As she delves into the thicket of mystery that surrounds her mother's death, Cassie begins to discover the desperate measures of which the human heart is capable.

I chose this rating because while the plot was just fine, the conclusion kinda left me wanting more. Also, I do enjoy this tone of readers voice but the reader seemed to make ALL sentences whispy like each thing no matter how mundane was romantic. I think this tone is good, but not needed for every line.

A really good book !

The book 'Sweet Water' is a very good book. I have read a few other books by Christina Baker Kline and they also were excellent,
with twist and turns in her story lines. I expecially like her decriptive writing and her attention to detail. I am extremely fond of the
way she brings in the old story of the caractrers past family history into the new story that she is telling you. Her books are well
worth the read.
