Softly and Tenderly, the second book in the Songbird Trilogy, was written by Sara Evans and Rachel Hauck, and it is the sequel to The Sweet By and By. I read the Sweet By and By nearly a year ago, and I was extremely excited to see the new book released this year. The book continues to follow the life of Jade who is struggling with issues such as anxiety, addiction, marital problems, and most of all infidelity. Her husband Max fathered a son who he wants to raise with Jade. This, along with other issues, causes Jade to question everything she has believed in her life, and I enjoyed seeing how she handled all of these issues which many people struggle with on a daily basis—although they typically only face one or two of the issues rather than such a large amount of issues at one time.
The book was an easy read, and I didn’t want to put it down as I read it over Christmas Break from work. I did feel the book was a little “soap opera-ey” as other reviewers have suggested, but that’s what I was expecting and anticipating when I began to read the book. I really enjoyed reading this book by country singer Sara Evans
