About one hour from Atlanta, directly in between Monroe and Loganville, lies a small town named Between. Though accessible to the city and still rather suburban in nature, this small town is far enough in the country to reflect the atmopshere of a real Southern country town.
Joshilyn Jackson introduces her main character, Nonny Frett, as a woman struggling to find her place in between the family that raised her and the family that let go of her. Nonny is at a crossroads in so many situations, from her love life to her family to her home.
Jackson uses Nonny Frett to tell a story of redemption, forgiveness, and love. I loved this book so much because Nonny’s story is filled with both laugh-out-loud and tear-jerking moments, and Jackson’s writing is superb. Between’s location made me feel more of a connection to the novel and some of the struggles Nonny experienced were ones that I had seen in my life and my friends’ lives.
