Rich in beautiful relationships this book takes the reader by storm in the opening paragraphs. Beginning with Isaac risking his own life in an attempt to save his employer’s life to relationships that cross racial lines, society lines and old family feud lines, the author creates a fascinating tale of mystery. Amidst the racial tensions stirring in the south in the 1960s comes an authentically warm and deep friendship that spans generations. The deep prejudices highlighted in Luesse’s book help the reader see the hypocrisy and courage of people during this radical time in our country’s history. Breathtaking and clever – this is a work of literary art.
I received this book from Revell publishers and was not required to write a positive review.
