Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this book! This is a great read. The story is set just after WW2 in rural Mississippi. It takes you into the lives of a black family whose son has returned from the war at the same time the white family's brother returns. I don't want to give the story away....once you start this book you won't be able to put it down.
