Review Blitz: The Hard Truth about Sunshine by Sawyer Bennett
The Hard Truth About Sunshine
By Sawyer Bennett
Release Day: March 28
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.
An angry, bitter amputee.
An optimist losing her eyesight.
A dying kid.
A suicidal thief.
Four people with nothing in common but their destination.
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.
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…
Warning: This book deals with some tough issues including suicide and sexual abuse.

3.5 (FOUR) BOUNDLESS STARS
The Hard Truth About Sunshine is a heartfelt story, of a few very different people coming together, for the same reason.
Christopher was injured, protecting our country. He's become bitter and really doesn't care what anyone thinks about him. He can't let it go, which in turn is turning him into someone he doesn't truly want to be. That is until they all decide to go on a trip.
The road trip this four go on is enlightening. Bringing these four souls together. Where they find truths about themselves they didn't know existed. Though the topics are tough and the ending I didn’t expect. Sawyer was able to do this in a beautiful way.
The character development was great with Christopher. You could see his gradual change throughout the story. The only thing is, I didn’t emotionally connect with the characters. I did highly enjoy this story.
Overall, I give this 3.5 (Four) Boundless Stars
