Book # 11 "The Sweet By and By: A Novel" by Todd Johnson

How do you want to get old? What things will matter to you as you age? Five very different southern women, in different stages of the aging process learn about life, love, and friendship in this lovely story.

Todd Johnson does a very good job in writing for a woman's point of view. The story is nicely paced and brings each woman's story to a satisfying conclusion. There's some real insight to what it means to grow old, when you body won't let you do what you used to do or when your body is fine but your mind has gone somewhere else.

What made this book was the relationship these five women had with one and other. How simple acts of kindness can touch the lives of, not only those who are shown kindness, but also those who show that kindness.

While this is a quick read, there is a lot said in this book. It is well worth a read.
