really liked it
Read in November, 2011

This is a difficult novel to describe, but it was engrossing. Essentially, two boys - one black (Tommy) and one white (Eric) are raised as brothers. Each are formed by Tommy's mother, a remarkable woman with tremendous insight, knowledge and love, until she passes away suddenly. The "brothers" are then forced to live apart. The novel traces their lives in parallel fashion until the end when they are reunited.
