By A Customer on 23 Aug. 1999
Format: Hardcover
I really enjoyed this book! It was well written and gave you a good sense of what the black community had to endure. It showed that even though the black people were freed from slavery, there life was far from being equal. Sometimes it was hard to believe just how awful the white people could be. I really felt for Rose Lee throughout the book. She had to go through so much when she is only a young girl. She shouldn't have to deal with so much racisim. If you want a good historical read, this is a great book!

I thought this book was excellent. It told a lot about the blacks and the whites back in the early 1920's. Now most whites and blacks get along pretty well. This book gave true horrific stories about the racism between the blacks and the whites, thats one reason why I liked this book. I liked the book because it gave a lot of information that happened between the blacks and the whites. I would highly recomend this book to someone who likes history books.

I like how Carolyn Meyer wrote this book. It can be sad but it was really the best book I've ever read. Carolyn Meyer did a great job of describing the way blacks had to live. I recomend this book to anyone at any time.

This was a great book. It was not that hard to get into and was very interesting. When I read it I learened a lot of things I never knew before, about those times. It was not the best book I have ever read but it wasn't the worst either. Hope you enjoy:)
