    " Loved the novel. I can't believe that I waited so long to discover and read it. I might think about assigning it in my American Slavery course or my History and Memory course. Even if I don't assign the novel, I will definitely cherish the powerful story and the beautiful writing. "

    " An entertaining but somewhat predictable story about the friendship of a black woman and a white woman living in the South. "
