Michele Gorman is mostly known for her romantic comedies and I have read and reviewed quite a few of them--they are delightful. I received an email telling me that a book she wrote under her pen mane Jamie Scott had been relaunched with a new cover. I had never read this particular book and decided to give it a try. I am very glad I did! This is not a romantic comedy it is in the author's words "an atmospheric coming-of-age women's fiction novel set in the 1940s American South (in Savannah Georgia)." It is about the North and the South--the blacks and the whites at a time when there were separate restaurants, bathrooms, you name it it was separate. I know this for a fact because when I was 10 or 11 (1960 or so) my parents and I took a road trip down south. I remember being very thirsty--it was hot down there and no air conditioning in cars--my Dad stopped and he started walking me to the restaurant to get something to quench my thirst. All of a sudden he stopped dead in his tracks and said--we will not go in there and took me by the hand and turned me around. When I asked him why he said if blacks are not allowed in there then they will not get my hard earned cash. I have not forgotten that to this day! This novel will take you through the eyes of a young girl who, originally from Massachusetts, moved with her parents to Savannah, through the 40's, 50's and into the 60's. You can almost feel what it was like to live there at that time when the old ways were vying with the new and the old guard southerners were holding on with all they were worth to the past.
