    This is a novel about racism and hate and how it destroys a family. Not that the family in this book needs much help destoying themselves. A more hateful family in literature, one will be hard pressed to find. The McQueens, hate each other, they hate their neighbors, and it is inevitable that they hate the new addition to their family, a black man named James.This new addition to the family comes about when Bridget marries him. When she brings him home, she discovers she cannot take the hateful stares, comments, and remarks and she turns to the bottle. This leads to drastic consequences and James has to run away, leaving his precious daughter, Rose Mary behind.Following the life of Rose Mary, readers witness racism in the 1950s and the destruction it causes, how ignorance ruins entire families. Towards the end, Rose Mary has a choice between two men that love her and want her no matter her race. (I still have my doubts about the one tho..)Three stars because I HATED the ending. Also, there is an issue with Bridget's brother Matt that was never fully explained. He seems to desire her or something and I found it almost as disturbing as all the racism towards both James and Rose Mary. And what bothered me more than anything is Rose Mary's nastiness towards Arabs. This didn't fit especially with her having been at the receiving end of racism herself.

    Good story!!!Love is the center of the story, despite the racism and discrimination against color people, two lovers fight for what they believe.

    Delivery is much delayed due to distance. First book did not arrive. They made good, however, by sending me a second copy.
