My rating: <a href="http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/115697878">3 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
No matter how well intentioned, nor how well a white woman thinks she can research this topic, only black women will ever know their true feelings about working for white people in the South. I'm not sure how unbiased I'd feel a book on this topic written by black women would be, either. It is fiction perhaps with some truth as all fiction contains and as such I liked the story. I will go to see the movie, too.
