Since, apparently, a bunch of you are readers.....(can I tell you - my post about Under the Dome probably had the most comments ever?!) I have decided to tell you about another book I've read.
I have just finished Cane River by Lalita Tademy.
To be truthful - I probably picked this up at Barnes & Noble from the discount table. (cause yeah - I'm cheap that way. Don't judge! I have to be! Because between you and me - my book habit is waaaaayyyy worse than my shoe habit!).
This book was part of the whole Oprah's Book Club thing.
Totally worth it.
It's a historical fiction book (which generally, I'm not too fond of); based on the author's research of her family history. It's a story of four generations of women. The beginning generation being slaves and ending in the difficult early years of the twentieth century.
This woman's style of writing is gripping (okay - really? That doesn't sound like me - but this book is one that you want to come back to - so how else would I describe it?)
It describes the struggle of family of women throughout slavery and beyond; the indignities; etc. What they went through to preserve family. How much family means - what they went through to insure that their children had a better life.
It's an awesome story - so if you get a chance; check it out and let me know what you think.
Arrrrrgggghhh! Dammit! I've forgotten to put a title AGAIN!!!!!!!!
