I think the topic of race is a very salient one at this moment in history. And, I think this book does an excellent job showing where we have been, and where we should be going.
I have a great respect and regard for the Cherokee. Also, my husband and children are registered tribe members, so that only makes me more attune to the culture and history of this Native American tribe.
I first fell in love with author Ruta Sepetys’ writing in the novel Between Shades of Gray. There are times when you’re not sure your’e going to enjoy a book centered on World War II events (or events leading up to it). So much tragedy buried in those stories, isn’t there?
