  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 2/1/2014

    " This is one of the best books that I've read in a long time. It traces different people who are black through their lives and relationships and through changing times. So much changed with respect to race in such a short time in this country. I found this book fascinating. Cannot say enough good about it. "

    " I read this book long ago, for a class. What's great about it is that it switches you in and our of time periods throughout the book, all the while connecting the characters until the end. It's been so long, I probably need to read this one again as well. "
