9780061579523: The Sweet By and By: A Novel

“Gentle, sensitive...sometimes funny, occasionally sad, and ultimately life-affirming.”
Winston-Salem Journal

 

The Sweet By and By is the story of five southern women of different ages and from very different backgrounds whose lives come together in a journey of courage, hope, and humor. First-time author Todd Johnson—who was a co-producer with Oprah Winfrey of Broadway’s The Color Purple—makes an indelible literary mark with a debut novel that bestselling author Adriana Trigiani (Very Valentine) calls, “heartfelt and stunning.” People magazine chose The Sweet By and By as one of its “Great Reads for Your Book Club,” saying, “Steel Magnolias fans will love this one.”

From the Back Cover:

"Bittersweet and often humorous...Johnson has a sure ear for Southern speech...the underlying message of the power of love and friendship resonates, as does its depiction of the way in which people leading unremarkable lives can have a tremendous impact on those around them."

--Publishers Weekly

"Save a place for this debut novel-essentially a hymn of praise for licensed practical nurses (LPNs)....Moving back and forth in time, Johnson does a fine job of illustrating the rich inner lives of those imprisoned by failing mental or physical health."

--Library Journal
