When her parents are tragically killed in a car accident, nineteen-year-old Annie must turn to the family’s African American friend Bo in order to keep the Knoll going. Annie becomes wiser than her years when her estranged Great-Grandma dies and leaves her entire estate to an African American butler and Annie must stop an angry mob from destroying the estate. Even when she marries, Annie must deal with discrimination in the hierarchy of the wives of her husband’s fellow professors.
The reader is placed into vivid scenes and feels along with Annie as she deals with mourning, racism, divorce, and a family history of depression. But we also cheer when she discovers the true meaning of friendship and love.
If you are looking for a good summer read, I suggest you get Annie Crow Knoll: Sunrise by Gail Priest. Then, like me, you can spend some time living on The Knoll and experiencing life’s ups and downs with some great characters.
By Gail Priest
Annie Crow Knoll: Sunrise, is the delightful story of Annie growing up on the Chesapeake Bay, loved by her parents and surrounded by friends. Annie Crow's parents owned and ran the collection of summer cottages, as did Annie when her parents died. This book touched upon most of the main themes of life and death, but the story remains one of hope and healing. The changing perspective didn't bother me as it did some of other reviews. The changes flowed from one to the next and I found them to be easy to follow. The different voices added great depth to the story.
The story has blunt truths and captures the essence of the time period, both good and bad. The situations are believable and the characters very true to life.
