As a reviewer I tend not to give away the plot of the story, I feel that is up to the reader as to whether they want to know what the book is about or not; there are many other reviewers who will fill you in on the content if you desire to know. When I decide to read a book I never look at the reviews, I never read the critic statement reviews on the first few pages that contain the comments made by other authors or newspapers, etc., I never read the flaps on the covers. I love opening a book and having no idea what I will be reading, it's an adventure!!
This book, as most that are offered via Kindle could have used a little better hand at proofreading.
*I was given this book via Kindle for free in exchange for an honest review.
In the summer of 1992, Meredith and Gale find the body of a dead black man in the river of their segregated hometown of Levine. Gale runs away for thirteen years then Meredith finds his picture in a magazine. She decides to find him and both of them go back home to Levine. Both Gale and Meredith have to face their haunting past, they also want to uncover the truth of what happened that one summer day.
A fast paced well written story. Both Meredith and Gale are likable. They both have secrets that haunt them, and they must come to terms with everything if they want to continue their lives in peace. But that seems mush easier said than done. Some thing were not easy to relive, but they must face the past to move forward. A great story filled with many emotions, some secrets, love and friendship.
