Read in May, 2012

This book is so much more than the historical events described on the jacket. The characters in the novel seem to grow with the landscape, and evolve into the inter-connectedness that is (thankfully) graphically depicted in a family tree in the beginning of the book. Glow is all the things you want in a novel - vivid writing, engaging story-lines, and complex and interesting characters. The author's focus on three main characters caught me on an emotional level as well, and I found that I thought what they thought and felt what they felt. It is astonishing to me that an author from New York City can write with such knowledge, detail and love about a county in Georgia and its people. No feelings were spared in this novel. The times were depicted with honesty and openness. I was so moved.
