Just finished this one last night and I'm still trying to figure out what to say about it. First: Read it. It's so good. So freaking good! Loyal Ledford returns from fighting in the Pacific in World War II and doesn't see the world the same way he used to, and definitely not the way folks in West Virigina see things. Ledford sets about creating a place where black and white live and work together... something like a utopia, built around a marble factory. I'm not saying enough about why it's so good. The writing: compelling. Tight. Real. The characters: unforgettable. Real. Happy and sad and tragic and heartbreaking. It's like real-life, only better because it's so well-written.
