Finally… I read it. I have been meaning to for years. Hmm… where do I begin? It was nothing I expected it to be. The book is about a lawyer’s attempt to do the right thing… defend a black man accused of raping a white woman. And yet… the book is through the eyes of his children… their thoughts, perceptions, how they are affected by their father’s involvement in the situation, how the father is trying to keep it all together and bring them up single handedly.
A good book… worth a read once.
At some level… I was disappointed. I felt the hype is more than the content.
