My Review:Swan Point by Sherryl Woods (The Sweet Magnolias #11)
Swan Points has a community of characters that I really like. It also has lots of gossip, everybody knows what you are up to. Some times it is helpful others it does a lot of harm. It deals with divorce and abuse. I like the plot. it is full of drama, relationships and romance. It is also a clean read.
Adelia Hernandez is Catholic and newly divorced. Her family is not too supportive of her getting a divorce. She has four children. She works in a store on Main street that sells clothes. She just bought a old home called Swan Point that needs some work.
Gabe Franklin has come back to his hometown to work for his cousin as a contractor. He was a troubled teen always getting into fights over protecting his mom. People would gossip about her and it might have been true but he still did not like hearing about it.
I really like Adelia's four children. She has three daughters and one son. They want attention from a father in their lives.
I think divorce is too easy to get now days and people find it just easy to give up. But in cases like Adelia where her husband does not want to try and work it out. Having affair after affair and flaunting in front of his children then the marriage is over or in the case of abuse.
I like how the women of the town are supporting of each other and willing to help where they can. They might gossip but they don't mean to be mean.
The setting for the book is a small town called Serenity, North Carolina. I would like to visit
Serenity and see all my favorite characters again.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give a honest review of the Swan Point.
