Somewhere Between Black and White
Shows and movies from a generation before them may not have had the profanity or the violent special effects that we see today, but they did not hesitate to wade into heavy and harry topics, which reflected real things that were going on in the world around them. Characters with no real flaws in a world with no real problems make moral decisions of no real consequence.
I know. I don't necessarily think that the brutal cynicism we see so much today is better for us in some way. That would be farcical. The brilliance of the show was that the circumstances of his life and the traits of his character made even his most outrageous decisions feel plausible, without, at the same time, becoming morally deterministic. She simply lets her own experience be known and then leaves Allie to glean from it whatever she can.
The subplots were either over-edited or undeveloped. I suspect the former. A few of the transitions felt awkward and truncated. Is there a rule about how long a chick lit novel can be? If someone even if the author herself shortened this book to comply with such a rule they did a great disservice to the story. I hate to do it but I have to go with only four stars on this review, but only because I kept feeling that something had been cut out and I wanted to read that something. Shelly Hickman is a talented enough writer to double the length of this book easily and only make it better. Next time out I hope she realizes that.

This story poses an interesting and fundamental question: who has changed the children or their parents. It is often observed and stated that children are less controlled and respectful than those of previous generations. Where lays the fault? Life consists of many shades of grey and not just black and white. This theme weaves its way through the story and leaves the reader with a very important lesson making it more than just a romance or novel.
I sometimes feel that authors employ poor grammar to make a character more realistic how sad is that? Readers get much more out of a book than fleeting pleasure. Every page read brings the reader more information about something. The information I have been receiving over the last few years is that writers now tend to pander to John Q.
Public and trade poor grammar to attain popularity; both parties lose. Quickly, I began to really enjoy this book and like the characters, especially the relationship Sophie has with her sister, Evie. I seemed confused by the flashbacks. Also, while I loved the sweet ending, I think it came too fast.
I wanted to see them struggle more as a couple, and I want to know they can get through anything and stay together. Sophie sees things in black and white. Things are always one way She's very judgmental and needs to be somewhat kinder to others. Sam, however, sees the gray - the kinder, softer, gentler side of things.

In addition to this being Sophie and Sam's story, her sister Evie and husband Christian have a strong presence. Their relationship is far from perfect, which Sophie is usually the first to point out, but as Sophie's relationship grows with Sam, she learns that true love can mean different things to different people and that it's up to each person to find their own path to happiness. I enjoyed the story. Being on the short side, it was a pretty fast read. When I started reading it, I didn't expect it to have a deep meaning, so I was pleasantly surprised by it.
Sophie has always seen things in black and white; she judges people and has no problem voicing her opinion. When she meets Sam who sees things in shades of gray, her thinking begins to change and so do her relationships. I liked this book and the message it was trying to get across, the characters were interesting and well rounded. I did have some problems with the flashbacks that Sophie and Sam kept having, I understand why the author included them, I just thought they were unnecessary and didn't add anything to the story.
Beyond that this was a sweet wholesome read, there were not any explicit love scenes, instead the focus was on the emotional connection between people. I adored Sam. I adored Evie and her strength. I adored how even though Christian cared so much for Evie, he still thought she deserved better than him. And of course, I adored Sophie's family, especially her aunt.
So while the story was cute and all, I just didn't see a major conflict. The flashbacks were confusing and not to mention a bit strange and the ending was just so rushed.
All the different perspectives makes it a bit harder to fully understand the characters and instead, just get litt I adored Sam. All the different perspectives makes it a bit harder to fully understand the characters and instead, just get little glimpses of ALL the characters I didn't think Jack's POV was needed, but alright I never found anything really that big of a problem besides Sophie and her judgments but I really wouldn't call that a major conflict.
Of course, it was just too cute for me to say no to any of Shelly's future works. I liked the romance between Sophie and Sam, and the soul mate angle was interesting to think about. The plot line for Evie and her husband Christian was pretty intense. Sometimes I was more excited to read about their story because there was a lot going on there, a lot of depth, and I was curious to see how they would end up.

Shelly combines romance with humour and creates an awesome story with a page turning plot line. I enjoy the story. I'm usually not a fan of a third person POV but this book is an exception. I like how it was narrated and the the writing style. The combination of family drama, relationship, humor and philosophical belief is great and refreshing for me especially after reading too much angsty books.
The storyline is deep and makes you want to contemplate your life. A recommended read!!! I have to say that I really enjoyed Shelly's writing style I loved the characters This was a cute story for sure! A reasonable read and a story with a valid message in it. She loves to write about people, examining their flaws, their humor, spirituality, and personal growth.
