By Lucy Reynolds VINE VOICE on 28 July 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After reading Cane River some years ago, I have frequently looked out for more novels by Lalita Tademy... and although years have passed, it's been well worth the wait.
Whereas Cane River was based upon Tademy's maternal family history, Red River is based upon her father's family history.
Once more the author manages to bring her own ancestry to life in this haunting and capitaving tale.
The scene is set in a post-civil war USA where slavery had ended, but the promises of a land, freedom, and the right to vote have not been met.
The blacks residents of Colfax, Louisiana, decide to take matters into their own hands and attempt to regain control of their town from the former confederacy. However, this soon becomes one of the most pivotal, violent episodes in the racial history of America, as a day-long bloody battle ensues.
The Tademy family must learn to live with the repercussions of that one deadly day, and must rebuild life.

This is a real page-turner.

Really enjoyed this book - beautiful characters, gripping story, vivid description and poignant account that really brings home social issues of racism, injustice and inequality. An emotional book that you won't want to put down.

I enjoyed Cane River so much more than this book - tending more to none fiction - but this is not to denegrate the story, I was looking for something different.
