Book Review: Chocolate-Covered Cashews by Wiley Baxter
Chocolate-Covered Cashews is written by Wiley Baxter and is published by Westbow Press.
This book is not excessively long but it took me a long time to read. I guess I didn't find it really going anywhere and it was easy to stop at any point without being tempted to read further. The premise of the book is that Wiley Baxter was married early in his life. The marriage didn't work out and his wife left him. What she didn't tell him is that she was pregnant with twin daughters at the time. In fact, this remained a secret for more than 36 years. When he was 57, he found out that he had the daughters and that those daughters were now married with their own children.
The book chronicles Baxter's life pretty much before he met the daughters. He talks some of how his faith turned toward Christ and about his marriage to the woman who has become his helpmeet.
I did not care a whole lot for this book though I did read it all. It isn't very long and it is an easy read. If you want to read a true story that is all that, go for this one. If you are looking for a meatier book, you might want to pass.
