Disclaimer: I received this book as part of the Goodreads First Reads sweepstakes.

I really enjoyed this book. The imagery was very vivid and the characters were well developed.

There were so many dynamics to keep you intrigued throughout this read. The author explores the relationships between fathers and sons, husbands and wives, people being unfulfilled at their jobs, but doing what they have to do to support a growing family.

Racial injustices and society's reaction to returning veterans are discussed, but not in a righteous, soap-boxy way.

If you're looking for an interesting stories with many facets that turns out to be a reasonably fast-paced read, then look no further.
