It reminded me of Black cultural views in the South. Skin color appears to be so important.
I would have to say it was when Juliette was in the hospital and everyone was saying she had had an abortion. Rumors spread like wild fire. Family was the main instigators.
Excitement, the story made me feel like I was back at home in the Mississippi Delta.
When I read a synopsis of the story, I really wanted to hear the entire storyline. I lived in Hawaii and the author hit the nail right on the head when describing how Polynesian men treat their women. They do not view any work outside the home as relevant. Some are quite sexist.
This was a Great read, I love Gwynne Forster, can't wait to listen to another one of her books.
