The story was engrossing and suspenseful, with a satisfying finish. I felt for the main character, Christine, and I was excited to see how she would adapt. The story developed believeably, and the ending didn't disappoint. Orlagh Cassidy did a great job of presenting the characters.
Being a child of a migrant, there were things about the way my parents looked at things that I didn't understand. How we were supposed to present ourselves, speak and achieve. That my father didn't really talk about what went on, even though he worked (full time) in the Civil Rights movement. I get it now. I think this book is a must-read for the descendants of the migrants, those in the south whose family members left, and ALL Americans.
I liked the relationships. The descriptions of the phenomena I found tedious.
I didn't know it was the ending. That was my biggest problem with the book.
I enjoyed the conversations between the two men.
