Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

Kathy Gregg, January 8, 2013

The author of this book created believable characters in an atmosphere of incredible obstacles. Though this is a fictional work, the tragic events in the story really happened in our country at a time when trust in people was over shadowed by fear. Yet the main characters did not lose hope. "He'd do what he always did, find the bitter among the sweet (p. 265) or (p.77) "...burnt sienna flooding the horizon. It reminded him that time was short but beautiful endings could still be found".
Excellent story, fine writing, U.S. history told in an interesting and compelling journey of
characters that come alive on every page.
