I really loved this book. Here’s what was written on Amazon:
“With empathy, grace, humor, and piercing insight, the author of gods in Alabama pens a powerful, emotionally resonant novel of the South that confronts the truth about privilege, family, and the distinctions between perception and reality—the stories we tell ourselves about our origins and who we really are.”
A woman’s love for her grandmother, and for a small Southern town. Two ancient ladies hanging on to each other in the last years of their lives. Characters that are beautifully constructed. Dialogue that rings true. A town choosing love and respect over racial divides.
A lovely novel.
