Childe Roland to the Dark Tower came.

I found this story thought provoking and funny at times. Knowing this is a first draft of To Kill a Mockingbird made me wonder if it would be any good. I found the conversations between Jean Louise, Hank, Atticus, Jack, and Alexandria entertaining. Jean Louise's conversations with Jack and her confrontations with Alexandria where highlights. I found Jean Louise's reunion with Calpurnia to be heartbreaking.

The social context grew heavy as the book progressed. The denouement was complex and satisfying, I hope to put a copy of this on my permanent shelf.
