Read in March, 2012

This book is way out of my genre, but I felt compelled to read it after being moved by the film.

I don't usually enjoy reading books with a tremendous amount of hype about them... if I do read them it is way after the hype has died down. This book certainly lived up to its hype.

As a 'white' partner in a mixed marriage, I found this book both disturbing and touching. It is an unfortunate fact of life that the prejudice of some, has just gone underground rather than be dealt with. I have received many a scornful look from both sides of the spectrum for my choice of husband. I have never viewed him as anything but the man who I love and who loves me...

I highly recommend this book...
