I can not put into words how much I enjoyed this novel. The author did an amazing job of taking the reader back to the time where women only worked with their husband's permission and black men could be beaten for riding in a car with a white woman. It was a much different time. Some would say simpler, but the pressures these women dealt with were anything but simple. I found it utterly fascinating and really felt as if I were taken back to that era. I would say this novel is for anyone who enjoys novels about friendship, love, or history. The author wraps all three up into this amazing little novel.
