I really wanted to like this book more. I loved Cane River. I feel like she started the book wrong (spoiler ahead). She starts with the massacre of over 100 black men in a small LA town, and the specific people who were involved. I wish she had set me up better, I always find the people stories more interesting. Honestly I skimmed through the whole "battle" and read the rest of the story about the family they left behind. Still, she is a talented writer. I wish I could weave such good stories around the facts I have gathered about my ancestors.
