Underneath the Sycamore Tree by B. Celeste: Release Blitz + Excerpt + Review

Title: Underneath the Sycamore Tree
Author: B. Celeste
Genre: Contemporary Stepbrother Romance
Publish Date: November 1, 2019
Review Source: Give Me Books Promotions

It happened in stages.

My father left.

My twin sister died of an incurable autoimmune disease.

My mother started breaking down.

Then I was diagnosed with the very thing that took my other half from me.

That was when I realized Mama’s eyes turned gold when she cried.

So I moved in with my father and his new family—new wife, new son, new stepbrother.

Kaiden Monroe made me feel normal.

Hated. Cared for. Loathed. And … loved.

Somewhere along the way, I’d found solace in the boy with brooding eyes.

But everything happens in stages.

And nothing good ever lasts.

Underneath the Sycamore Tree has literally flabbergasted me. I really cannot stress enough how well written this beauty is. The research, the time it took to describe each character and their backgrounds, and even the supporting characters. Just .. amazing.

 I will tell you that in order to successfully read this book, you will need an entire box of tissues. Whether it be tears of fear, sadness, joy or love, you will cry. I know that I sobbed through many, many chapters. Don’t let that turn you off. That shows you how well it is written. My all-time favorite book is written by Kristin Hannah. Well folks, I am here to tell you that Underneath the Sycamore Tree is ranked right next to it. I never thought that anything would compare, but I was so wrong.

B. Celeste is a new to me author and I don’t know what I was waiting for. I should have read her long ago. This book is brilliance. It’s life. Its raw and real and just everything a book should be. Make sure to pick up your copy immediately!!

We walk for what feels like forever until I see a large sycamore tree in the middle of a field of purple flowers. It seems out of place, yet perfectly set at the same time.

Kaiden walks over to it and sits down, leaning his back against the thick trunk. He seems at peace, which is a new look for him. His body is eased as he stretches his long legs out without a care in the world.

I stare. Not just at him, but at the tree. It’s huge with its long branches and bright green leaves transitioning into yellow and orange and red that give the space a beautiful kind of life. Lo would have loved this spot. She would have dragged me out and stayed here until Mama called our names in frantic worry. Lo always wanted to be free, out in the open, surrounded by trees and plants and animals.

Suddenly, the tears that had finally stopped falling on the way over begin building again until everything blurs. Bottom lip trembling, I hear Kaiden’s heavy sigh.

“What’s wrong now?”

I answer silently what my emotions won’t let me speak aloud.

 Lo was buried under a sycamore tree.
