However, The Locket is more than just a mystery: It threads social consciousness and love between family and friends throughout the story; and kudos to Susan Van Kirk for tackling one of the most loaded issues in our society—race. Sweeney, who is bi-racial, moves with ease between the black and white communities of the small Midwestern town of Endurance, finding clues and connections where less skillful detectives would miss them. In the process she uncovers Endurance's racist past; a past that is still present in the hearts of some white citizens of the little town.
The Locket is a literary stew of suspense, nostalgia, and social commentary that an appreciative reader will lap up. I must give The Locket my highest compliment—It is a wonderful story!
