    Loved it!

    I tore through this book in two days it was so hard to put down. I had read and loved Ahab's Wife and was definitely not disappointed by Four Spirits.

    I remember so much of this history

    This was a heartwrenching story for me. I grew up in Birmingham in the 50s and 60s, during the time depicted so vividly in this searing novel. In fact, I lived on the same boulevard where Stella lived, went to the same high school, and in fact learned-- after having this book recommended to me by someone who knew I grew up in Birmingham-- that the author's brother and I graduated from there the same year. (She is his younger sister). During this time period I was myopically living the life of a middle class young white girl, totally untouched by the struggles of the times, by the fear, the suffering, the heroism, the humanity of those central to the struggle for human rights and dignity. By reading this book I was able to relive my past from a whole different perspective. What a gift!

    just as gripping as ahab's wife

    I could not put the book down! I wasn't around in the 60s, but the raw emotion on the pages of this book made me feel like I was. Naslund is a fantastic writer. Her characters have depth; her plots are deep and meaningful. She questions the values the lay at the core of humanity. A must read!
