My Review: This was an interesting read. Our society, our culture here in the USA has gone through so much. A promised land of freedom, wealth, and safety to all who come here doesn’t mean equality, trust, love, and peace all the time and all at once. Wehave gone through wars to be free. We have given our lives, sweat, blood, and good men women and children to the American dream. Differences make up who and what an American is. These differences can break us apart or make us stronger. Even some differences between people may result in some people seeing those differences as going against the God of all people.
Paulette addresses these issues within her amazingly well written book. She is a great author as her characterization is the best I’ve seen. The plot is so realistic it seems like honest true history.
If you don’t mind reading books about controverisal topics this is a great read. If you don’t like controversial topics then don’t read this. Mom’s Thumb Reviews gives this book a thumbs up and thumbs down. Thumbs up for how well it is written, and a thumbs down because we do not affiliate with or support Gay or Lesbien standards.m
