    " Loved Marlette's cartoons. This novel? Not so much. Seemed a little too sentimental in that Southern/baby boomer kind of way. "

    " It was very heavy in violence, but I have learned a lot about American Civil Rights movement, being a naturalized American myself. It is pretty graphic, so, be ready if you decide to read it. "

    " I thought this book was very good and had a hard time putting it down--stayed up until early hours of the morning finishing it. The time shifts between a terrorist bombing in New York City back to a church burning in Troy, Mississippi in 1964. The plot centers around convicting an ex Ku Klux Klan grand master of ordering the church burning and the murders of four Civil Rights workers in that church at the time of the burning. Lots of buried secrets are dug up and exposed. "
