Hurray for the writing pen of Cassie Dandridge Selleck.
People who have never lived in a small town don't really know what they would do when faced with situations that happen in a life built on long term relationships, not just of their family but an entire town of a few hundred people who have know each others business for generations. A place where years of conglomerate memories of disappointment, despair, pain, betrayal, jealousy, hurt, hate, anger and revenge are held onto and passed down, remembered, enhanced, changed to fit new fights and relationships. In the midst of all this tight society there is also enormous love, compassion, loyalty, heroism, triumph and even some times forgiveness. But memories die hard and from one time to another each person is trying to hold on to some grasp of dignity, survival, hope and personal power.
Another page turner from Cassie Selleck. I hope to find out soon what the characters in her sequel to The Pecan Man will do, be and accomplish. Raised in South Carolina, her stories remind me of many characters I have known and remember still .
Overall, it’s a fun read. However, Selleck doesn’t ignore the elephant in the room. She hones in on issues of race but does so in a way that captures the nuances of the relationships without being heavy-handed in judgment. Thematically, the message is that racism still exists, that we need to do better, and that it will be difficult, but that by-and-large even racists aren’t necessarily evil, rather small-minded, misguided, and ignorant. This realistic portrayal of racial tension could be a bridge builder. I do hope book 2 of the series is forthcoming because I must know how things work out between Beanie and Will.
