I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The pace built up with the storm and despite a large group of characters they were all so skillfully drawn they were eaisly identifiable and not one was superfluous to the plot.
Although I was aware of the plight of the coloured population of the US even into more modern times the great storm was a story I had not heard before and these two aspects have been skillfully woven into the one story. Clearly the author cares deeply about both issues and I hope she can create as much detail and tension for a new novel very soon. An impressive first novel.
I'm sick to death of it - anyone else?
What on earth do I do? - too close to Christmas
I don't understand this trend - AIBU?
