    "The Sweet Gum Tree is an average drama/romance novel set after world war 2. Those interested may find it a decent read but if you are looking for a bit more depth look elsewhere."

The two of them get more than their fair share of struggles, but in the end they still get their happy ever after. "

    "The Sweet Gum Tree is a bit of an intense book, but I really enjoyed it. It's a different take on growing up in difficult situations and learning that you are more than the sum of your negative experiences. I like how you can feel the emotions and interactions of the characters mature over the course of the novel."

    "This is a sweet, homely feeling novel about a girl and boy in a small town. Of course this book has a dark side to it but overall, it's a good feeling upon completion."

    "This is a great childrens book, I'd say you can start at about 5 since it's a little more complicated to understand. 10-12 might be a better age fit for this book."

    "This is not a typical love story, but still very sweet. I loved that the story had some unexpected elements, and I found it to be a breath of fresh air. If you are looking for an interesting romance novel, look no further!"

    "It's another one of those stories of the strong, independent woman at her lowest point. There's nothing bad about the book but then again - there's nothing noteworthy or praiseworthy about the book. It's definitely a book I'd pass on if I had the chance to read it again but I'm not upset I read it in the first place. Overall: meh."

    "Talks about what the book is about, but sentence structure could be better. Doesn't really do a good job of selling on the book."

    "I'm glad I finally read The Sweet Gum Tree. This is such a beautiful story of love, loss and reconciliation.They become soul mates at a very young age and as they grow so does their love for each other but life gets in the way and there are many twists and turns that interfere in their love for one another. One thing about this book that is guaranteed is that it will pull at your heart strings."

    "according to the description under the solution the sweet gum tree seems like a slow romance based on the length of the relationship from childhood however things speed up and gets real quick when the father dies and nick leaves his childhood friend alone and pregnant. Seems like a very interesting story that fits the narrative and topic well."
