it was ok
Read in April, 2012

This book, which got glowing reviews, baffled me: it was one long straight line from start to finish. No great insights, no great lessons, no big events. The diction was pretty stilted, so even tho I liked Mae Lee as a character, the story as a whole left me cold. The best part was the scene when Mae Lee visited the plantations in Charleston--that was poignant and well told. Otherwise, just flat--a pleasant enough story about nothing much, just a regular woman.
