Read from December 01, 2008 to January 01, 2009, read count: 1

Pretty good. Looks deeply into a number of tricky racial issues. And explores the nature of a long lasting marriage.

However, the book suffers from having a number of quite unlikeable characters, particularly Howard, and from having long, rambling dialogue passages (perhaps a little too realistic)
