4.0 out of 5 stars THIS JUST BROKE MY HEART, 12 May 2013
This review is from: Calling Me Home (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Even though I am glad I read this book and it stayed with me for a
long time after I finished it it is heartbreakingly sad.

Dorrie and Isabelle are unlikely friends - but they have been friends
for many years Dorrie is a black hairdresser and Isabelle is her
elderly white client. Isabele presumes on Isabelles friendship and
asks her to drive her across the country as she has to atternd a funeral.

Dorries has troubles aplenty of her own but nevertheless agrees to take
her. What trasnspires then is so heartbreakingly sad - as a young girl
Isablle is saved from an unpleasant older man by the housekeeper's sowho is black -
they become friends then more and disregarding the cruel racial divide
events overtake them with heartbreaking results.

What makes this a particularly poignant read is that it is based on the events
of the author's own grandmother's life. Awonderful book but so heartbreakingly
sad - you will be reduced to tears - but emotionally brilliant.
