" I have mixed feelings about this book. "Pages" is a story of racial and gender issues in 1913 Tennessee. There were parts I really liked, and others I thought unnecessary. I'm no prude, but some steamy parts felt too close to one of those bodice rippers with a tawdry cover. On the other hand, that might have been when kept me turning pages after alot of heavy somber reading lately! The author tried to break some stereotypes by reversing what could have been cliched plots and characters, but it didn't always work for me. I do question whether some of what I felt as implausible is my caucasian naivete showing through. "
