An incredible journey through a century into a future that swings you back again into the past for more blood boiling and enlightenment.

Reading like a biography rather than a novel, Letters from Sweetwater covers the lifespan of its protagonist, Jesse Garmon, who has much in common with its author, Dr. Dale Garland.

Slow to start, Letters from Sweetwater twists and turns in a rumbling fashion with all the grace of a slow moving mountain stream. It is beautiful in verbiage; however, lacking in subplot. The suspense isn’t altogether that suspenseful, but it is intended more to be a moving story, driving the reader to faith and epiphany. It was lacking insofar as the method of storytelling, which was at times frustrating to read.

This book made me feel like I was a part of something bigger, something with purpose. There are times that I forget to stop and enjoy the basics of life. Letters from Sweetwater is the type of book that will open your eyes to things that you know but don't always realize. The message was simple but true and the writing had a certain flow to it. I would highly recommend this book to someone who needs a little reminder that life is short.
