A BOOK YOU OWN BUT HAVE NEVER READ

For this category I read

Set in the 1960’s this book deals a lot with the dichotomy of the Black and White race relations during the time of segregation and the start of the Civil Rights Movement as seen from the perspective of the black housekeepers employed by the white socialites of Mississippi.

I have to say that I see many parallels with this book as with issues once again rearing their head in our society today.

I loved this book and if you haven’t read it, I would recommend it!

If you have read it, please share with me what you thought of the book.
