This was a great book to read after To Kill A Mockingbird. These books walked a lot of the same path, but with very different outcomes.
James is the child of a Jewish mother who married a black man and was permenantly torn from her birth family because of that. This is the story of deep love for a family and for God, and the way that love can overcome.
James tells an amazing story. Weaving his mother’s past and his own past together.
