Could not get into this story at all. It seemed to jump about making it hard to follow, so I gave up half way through.

4.0 out of 5 stars Call Home the Child brings us back to the era ... 17 Aug. 2014
By Dona W. Gould - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Call Home the Child brings us back to the era when a number of socialites adopted black children to prove their compassion and their acceptance of civil rights, never realizing how condescending their attitude actually is and the harm it can cause. Call Home the Child highlights how it affects the child stuck in the middle and the tension and havoc it can create.
At times the book slows down a bit, but it offers a different perspective on the nation shortly after the Civil Rights Movement began.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 9 Jun. 2014
By suzy Q - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Interesting story of racism in the 80's with an array of diverse characters, but what truly impressed me was Carrigan's beautiful literary writing, each sentence a work of art. Looking forward to reading more of his books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Carrigan knows how to tell a story. ... 6 Dec. 2014
By Maxine S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Mr. Carrigan knows how to tell a story. The plot, the characters, and the action are all realistic. There are no heroes or villains, only people who start out wanting to help with the care of a young African-American child, but who then let their own self-interest take over.
