The characters are phenomenal, primarily their names which are a story of their own.
I feel as though every plot and sub plot in this novel can be a book on its own.
The ending is disturbing in a good and bad way.
If you want a good read look no further. You wont be putting this book down after you get through the first half
It takes place during the 20's in a southern town... and tells the story of people from all walks of life - blacks, the wealthy whites, and some white prostitutes. She tells the story of each group of people in a very authentic way and gives each group a sense of pride. And of course... the stories mingle as the characters begin mingling outside theor social circles.
The way i'd say this book was different than some of her others (and i've read about 10), is that it's more... well... more like a soap opera. (along the lines of V.C. Andrews). There is incestual sex, illigitamate pregnancies, etc.
This book was definately fun to read though... and has a beautiful message...

Some readers may be offended by the direct language of some of the characters of the book, actually it is only the 'real talk' of real people in the south. Read morePublished on December 15, 2012 by Southern Reader
