Book Review

(by- Linda )

A page-turning story that reminds us of our ugly past but is also eerily similar to today's recent events.

A page-turning story that reminds us of our ugly past but is also eerily similar to today's recent events.

The story takes place during the Jim Crow era in Mississippi and rural Georgia. President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, but nothing much changed. The story centers around two young black women on the run. Violet is running because she murdered a white man who raped her, and Marigold is running from an abusive husband.

The story shows how difficult life and justice are for black women in the South and looks deeply at family relationships. It also delves into discrimination and abuse of Blacks in the South. They cannot turn to the law for help but are also subject to extreme retribution by angry white men.

This solid character-driven story emphasizes dysfunctional family relationships, evil small-town justice, and prejudices.
