Very moving book ...
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was difficult to hear all of the racially charged (sayings, treatment, etc.), but necessary for the time. The history of our country is difficult for us to relate to, but through a book, we can feel both empathy and sympathy alike whilst reading. The author was poignant and eloquent. I loved that the story spanned across 6 generations during the times of the civil rights movement.
The narrator offered the perfect voices to keep the narrative flowing through the chapters. I felt like I was listening during the different times throughout history in the book while she was reading. I would most definitely listen to a book by the narrator again.
I only caveat in the book is the child molestation scenes. I feel as though the book could have done without those scenes. While I realize these things do happen, it was very uncomfortable for me to read.
