Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1965, The Keepers of the House is Shirley Ann Graus masterwork, a many-layered indictment of racism and rage that is as terrifying as it is wise.

I had this book on my list to read merely because of the Pulitzer prize. I am so happy I read it! It is one of those books that develops character; builds the plot slowly and beautifully, then crashes with the crescendo of fear, anger, love and hope.

For people who do not remember the segregation issues of the past, this is a great example of how life was lived and felt in the past.
