A very good book. Brings out the human nature of people, not willing to stand up against a bully. Such a good picture of the friendship that can bond the races. A look at what it was like in the era of lynchings.

I really enjoyed this book. It is unbelievable that people could live through some of the things this family faced. They had parents who seemed to love them and were proud of them, seemed intelligent in their own way, but had no ambition. It is to Jeanette's credit that she turned out as she did.
