I’m so glad I read this book. It’s a slice-of-life story of African Americans living at the time of the KKK. They lived in fear but they still went on with life. The description of wilted lettuce sounds delicious! I enjoyed reading Stella’s work as a writer. The only thing I didn’t like about the book was that the plot did seem to lead to the climax I expected. The storyline of the men in the community registering to vote was good. The best thing about this book was how it brought the relationships in their community to life.
