Everyone should read this book.
on September 17, 2015
Since finishing "The Color of Water," I have recommended it to everyone I know who reads.
This should be required reading in every high school in the country. It addresses race relations; religious differences; family dynamics. And it is a loving tribute to a most remarkable mother.
The writing is outstanding; the paragraph that gives us this memoir's title is one of the most (if not THE most) memorable paragraphs I've ever read, and it is all I can do to keep from quoting it while I'm recommending this book!
I cannot believe it has taken me so many years to read "The Color of Water.". McBride has a masterpiece here.
