Being Plumville by Savannah J. Frierson

Plumville, Georgia had an order to its way of life, and few ever upset it.

Benjamin Drummond is heir to all Plumville had to offer-wealth, good looks, and a promising career as a future state judge. As a graduating senior at a local college, he's poised for success, if only he can keep his grades up. With the distractions of playing football, being in a fraternity, and having his pick of the women on campus, he has little incentive to study-until his assigned tutor turns out to be a black girl from his past who'd never left his mind...or heart.

Coralee Simmons is determined to make it out of Plumville with a diploma in her hand and dignity in her stride, despite a social climate determined to stifle both. And with her family and friends supporting her each step of the way, Coralee knows she will go far. Yet when her mentor provides a tutoring opportunity to increase her edge, she's suddenly reunited with the white boy who'd meant too much to her as a child...and still did even now.

Set during the turbulent 1960s, Benjamin and Coralee experience change in a community unprepared and unwelcoming of it. Can a relationship rekindle and bloom under such adversity, or will it succumb in the battle for Plumville's status quo?

This is a compelling novel about two young people of different races who were best friends and grew up together but were separated early because of the differences in their races and social status. In college they are drawn together again and the feelings between them haven't changed, it's now so much more. What makes this more than the average IR racially conflicted romance is that Ms Frierson captures the emotional suffering of these two lovers because of the racial prejudice culture of the south they are raised in. Throughout the work the one thing the author kept clear is that love knows no color or status and has the power to let nothing stand in its way.

This is one of three books I've read by Ms. Frierson, and after reading I can honestly say that she is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I read interracial/multicultural romance frequently, it's one of my favorite genres. What I like most about the way Ms. Frierson writes is, the characters are their personalities and not their cultures. They are so much more than their cultural background. It is apart of them, of course, but you never lose the fact that Ben and Coralee are their own individual people not their entire race. The events that take place in this book are typical. Two people from different cultural backgrounds fall in love, their community does or does not accept it, and they fight to overcome it. What makes this story different for me, is the overall focus on the feelings between Ben and Coralee. I enjoyed reading this from page one, and I am excited to see what's next from this author.

Frierson...and it is DEFINITELY my favorite of the three...a strong and TOUCHING engaging and MEMORABLE well-developed cast of characters...and some SURPRISING and unexpected twists that keep me turning the pages to see what will become of Benjamin and Coralee...a WORTHWHILE read!

Sweet sweet love story. This is truly one of the best IR romance novels I have read. Ms. Frierson did an excellent job telling the story of Benny & Coralee. I was able to feel Benny & Coralee LOVE and PAIN . For those of you who are into IR romance novels, this is a MUST read. It will have you thinking about the characters way after you finished the book. I will be reading this again!!!

Amazing, I cannot believe this is the same story that was on, I personally did not think it was going to be published, but when I discovered that it made the cut, I was shocked. I read the online version, and it was so excellent. So obviously I'm going to buy the book.

I loved this book. It's as real as a book can get. Makes you feel every emotion one can feel as a human being. You can walk in the shoes of both Ceelee and Benjamin. And the love they feel for each other actually reaches out from the book and wraps it's way around your heart.

Being Plumville is one of the better I/R romances that I have had the opportunity to read. Ms. Frierson's depictions of the south and the ultimate love and tenderness between Ben and Ceelee is poignant and real. This is definitely a read I would recommend and I look forward to reading more from this author.
