My soul cried when I read this. For anyone who has felt left out of their own family.

This is dark at times. Hard for me to read some of it, but well written. It is for our Book Club and I finished it a few days ago. Not sure I would recommend this for anybody.
At the heart of this astonishing novel is Ruth Anne Boatwright, known simply as Bone, a South Carolina bastard with an annotated birth certificate to tell the tale. Observing everything with the mercilessly keen eyes of a child, Bone finds herself caught in a family triangle that will test the loyalty of her mother, Anney.
one of my favorite books.
This book stayed with me long after I read it. Couldn't bear to watch the movie though I may rent it someday...

The Time Travelers Wife. Such a good book!
The Time Travelers Wife - Audrey Niffenegger (Note: it's a book worth reading; it is NOT a movie worth watching.)
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Finished March 17, 2012, book club March selection. Wonderful book, stayed up until 3am finishing it, then couldn't get to sleep for thinking about it.
I caught part of the movie when I was home sick and decided to use an Audible credit to listen on the way to and from work. This is the first fiction book I've listened to since I read Pride and Prejudice a few years ago. While this doesn't compare to Jane Austin, it was a very nice change to take a break from the non-fiction I've been listening to recently.

Time Travellers Wife, Audrey Niffenegger- Most favorite book of all time
The biography of a true Mississippi rascal. He was a hustler, a pimp, and ran business for organized crime but he was also a husband, father, and leader of change in 1960's Mississippi. The brother of Medgar Evers' life story is one of my all-time favorite reads. I highly recommend it.

Have No Fear: The Charles Evers Story: Charles Evers, so glad that I got to meet this magnificent man!--He was my teacher and I was in his class as he run telling us goodbye. So Thankful!
Happy 92nd birthday to Mississippi civil rights activist Charles Evers. #Mississippian #HappyBirthday #civilrights
It's so good I'm reading it again. It's set in Mississippi. Has murder, suspense, an illicit love affair, and touches on race relations.
