This book was okay at best! As a person of African American decent, the summary of the book drew me to purchase it. As I read the book I just couldn't help but to think if the author new anything about "the ways of black folk". I just couldn't understand that if Mabel was 96% white, how could so many people tell she was 4% negro. I also wanted to know what was up with the hat......hat on white, hat off black! I also found the love story between Charles and Mabel to be less than fulfilling. Both characters seemed very immature socially, but professionally at the top of their field. It was a quick read and the historical references were very good, but the story as a whole was not what I expected from an African American love story.
