I wasn't so sure that I would enjoy this book as I am worn out by the stories about racial issues and the South. This book is so much more than that, though. It is due to race that many choices are made, but the friendships and family relationships and simply the fact that the author knows how to spin a tale made this an enjoyable read. Highly recommend.

I absolutely loved this book from the first page to the last. The author has an amazing gift for creating characters that you feel you know and root for. Highly recommended.

Five stars is not enough to rate this book! This is one of the most powerful books that I have read in a long time. One of my favorite books of all time is To Kill a Mockingbird, and for some reason the entire time I was reading The Pecan Man, To Kill a Mockingbird kept coming into my mind, I think because of the subject matter- discrimination, assumption of guilt because of color and life circumstance, guilt and trying to assuage that guilt, and true love for those around you. I absolutely loved this book!!!
