Somewhere I read a review of this book that peaked my interest so I was thrilled when I found it available via Kindle for the library. I kept on missing the check outs so I'd re-list the book and wait again, twice the 20th or 25th person on the list. Well it was worth the wait! Not that the book is great literature, but the main character who drives the narrative is compelling, interesting, and it is well written. Somehow I related to Josie, a smart African American woman making her way in a white mans world (I'm still always the significant minority when I'm in court) and struggling with her choices, and her relationship with her father. I zipped through the book in two nights and thought the ending was just right, if a tad overly sentimental.
