This is a wonderful book! I believe guys and girls both will enjoy this novel. Fans of 1950's historical books, human interractions, or simply a great novel will be beyond pleased with this one. I highly recommend it!
I just finished it, and am already wanting more. I read it twice... Yes, it was that good, and I'd love for people to discover these authors and this book. Their talent as authors is right up there with the best of those published by mainstream publishers - in fact much better than most of the mainstream I've read. I'm looking for great things from these ladies!
They did a professional job with fleshed out characters who you get to "know", love or hate. The gamut of emotions these characters bring out in you is incredible. You HAVE to know what happens with them. This book pulls you in with the such a magnetic pull, it's nigh impossible to put it down. Almost as impossible as the tides saying "No" to the moon. You will keep reading into the wee hours, because this is not an easy one to simply stop and put down.
Blurb: "It’s 1958, a time when women and Negros are deemed second-class and are being second-guessed, and there arises the perfect storm for change, and the perfect time for an unlikely friendship.
Beatrice “Beanie” Peterson, forced to marry at fifteen and live with two sister wives, six children, and an abusive husband twenty years her senior, is looking for a way out.
Adeline “Liddie” Stewart Garrison, friend of Jack Kennedy, wife of a prominent Boston business man, and resident of Beacon Hill has already found her way in.
A wrong number, and a cry of desperation at the end of the line, sparks a long distance friendship between the two women who’ve never met. Through fourteen years of trouble and heartache from a stagnate domestic life, the struggle of civil rights, and the stigma of interracial relationships, a bond forms between the two that changes both of their lives forever."
