I'm honored to be on this list -- and also to find some other must-reads for my own shelf! Thank you! All my best, Todd

This is one of my favorites this go round. If you loved The Help from the last list, you MUST read The Sweet By and By. Todd Johnson's characters will stay in your soul long after you finish the last page!

I loved The Help for the last list, but I thought this book was just okay. The first part was great, the middle was good, but I had a hard time finishing it because the ending was so slow.

Great story! Todd Johnson got the everyday drama and feeling of a care facility spot on! Looking forward to more books Mr. Jonnson!
