“I picked this up to read at the beach this past week and absolutely loved it. I especially loved Starla as a narrator: fiesty, yet innocent, with a wonderful sense of humor. Loved, Loved, LOVED the book!!”
“Read in 1 day. I have never read a book by this author, have to say I am very happy! This a suspenseful and insightful about the 1960′s. Highly recommend!”
“I was a huge fan of The Help and was hoping this would be half as good. I couldn’t put it down – great characters, great writing . . . a great book.”
My Grandmother said she prays for me every day. Which was funny, because I'd only ever heard Mamie pray, "Dear Lord, give me strength." That sure sounded like a prayer for herself...
No. No. I was nothin'. And I'd been bad. But I paid. Paid and paid before Wallace save me.
Our upstairs is hot as the hinges of Hades... I kinda hoped when Mamie got home late this afternoon, she'd find me passed out from heatstroke.
The colored don't choose to live here. It's where they're allowed to live.
I was horrible thirsty, but I didn't take it; Mamie had made it clear: no matter even if we're about to expire from thirstiness, we don't drink after negras.
Remeber when we was bakin', and what I say about overworked crust? You and me, we done pushed our luck 'bout as far as a body dare. We overworked crust.
