Intimate intergenerational story with historical scope
I really loved the three main characters-- daughter, mother & grandmother-- and how Southgate gave each one her own secrets, desires, and space within the narrative to bloom, with some delicious surprises. It's a real talent to be able to take the reader into these unique private worlds of three different characters with each one feeling fully formed and alive. I'm also a sucker for those kinds of intergenerational stories. In this case we were treated to an intimate view of the experience of being an African-American woman within three specific and very different time periods. And, hey, it's sexy too! I hope this will find the wide and enthusiastic audience it deserves...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
