Sweetheart is a small novel, both in terms of size and content. A two-star rating on Goodreads is meant to signify that a book is 'OK'. Sweetheart is pleasant to read, but it doesn't really light any fires. It's 'OK'.

Dulci Evers AKA 'Sweetheart' AKA Cinea Verse was a Jamaican painter living in New York. She died as a young woman, and an assortment of the key people in her life tell her story in the days and weeks after she's gone.
