Widely hailed for its historical resonance, Daniel Black's The Sacred Place is a powerful examination of racial tensions in 1955 Mississippi.

Visiting from Chicago, 14-year-old Clement is unfamiliar with the social customs of the tiny town of Money. Striding into a general store, he offends the white store clerk by not placing his nickel in her hand. This seemingly innocuous act leads to a horrific murder and a conflict drawn along racial lines.

    " I felt this book was based loosely in fantasy. As a reader I love when the little guy wins but taking in consideration the time this novel was based on the concept was unbelievable. "

    " This book is full of details that make me feel a part of this story. I feel like I received a history lesson from all the historic references. This book was very well researched. I look forward to reading more from this author. . . "

    " A poignant, fictional account of the Emmitt Till murder. Black does a good job of contextualizing the unaccounted for "voices" of those impacted by the horrfic murder and recovery of Till's body. There are some rather grotesque elements in the novel. "

    " Eloquent. I wish everything I read was this good. "
