Overview

After 30 years of marriage, Greg and Rebecca Weaver take a painful look back at life as an interracial couple during the plight and passion of the Civil Rights Movement.

The courtship starts during a time when it would have been more popular to murder someone than cross the “color line”. Greg searches deep within himself to relate to his feelings about race relations and being married to a black woman. Rebecca, on the other shoe, tells her side of the story with all the conviction and strength of a woman with great virtue and courage.

In The Color of Love we learn of life’s trials and tribulations-faith and perseverance- and that true love and change starts on the inside and works it’s way out.

I didn't know what to expect from 'The Color of Love', but after reading the first three chapters I found myself caught up in the story and could not put the book down!! Greg and Rebecca told the story from their own perspective. Growing up during this era, I found the story to be very realistic and written from the heart. I felt what both characters were experiencing... it had me laughing, crying, and I'm still a little upset with Greg. I am looking forward to a sequel, because I'm curious to know what happened to the children? I look forward to reading more novels by Cassandra Darden Bell.

I can only praise this book for its general goal - I hoped to read a captivating book about the struggles of an interracial couple, and Darden Bell hoped to write such a story. The grammatical errors on the back cover should have forewarned me of the devastating use of English that awaits the reader. While some readers may be able to avoid cringing at the punctuation and grammatical errors that plague literally every page of the novel, even less meticulous readers will be left desiring the hours of their lives lost reading this book. From the very beginning, the plot is deteriorating like a bad lie - Greg's parents move to America in 1950, he is born shortly after, and he graduates from high school miraculously in 1965, at the age of 18. The plot is not convincing; many aspects of the human psyche are ignored to form an incomplete analysis of a vague topic. Stick with the classics.

From the introduction to the final chapter, the book captivated me. The manner in which it was written kept me on edge from chapter to chapter. I could hardly wait to read what was going to happen next! The grand finale really shocked me. There have been only a few books that I have read that held my interest like 'The Color of Love'. I don't usually finish a book in less than a week!
