really liked it
Read in January, 2010

After finishing up a class on Black American Literature I found this book to be a plesant tie-in to the historical position blacks help, and hold, in this country. The story is narrated in a current and up-beat style I found easy to read. What goes on in this southern town and the in-fighting between families is sobering and funny. I highly recommend this as a fun and yet complex read. It takes about three days (10 hours) to read.

Gerry Hine What a delightful and fun book to read. Get a back-door view of life in the deep south from the domestic servents point of view. A few twists, some good discriptions of southern life and many insights into human interactions make this an interesting read.

Laura Hey, Gerry--this looks interesting. I like those dysfunctional family books once in awhile. Sounds a bit like upstairs/downstairs southern style...(domestic servants).

Been wondering how the backward design work has been going.
