Great approach to an uncomfortable topic. However, I could have done with less foreshadowing throughout the book.
Great description of characters and locations. I felt like I knew them and had been there.
My opinion is this is a much better book than "The Help" and we all know how highly that book is rated and I honestly believe this book would make a fantastic movie. I have already shared it with 2 friends and they loved it too!
This author MUST write more; she has outstanding talents.
This book showed another view of the slave and plantation days. The two worlds, (black and white) can be blended as the main character tried to do. This is a book I will recommend to my book group. It will be great for discussion.
