Boss Suggested It! Glad I Read It!

Would you listen to Blood on the Leaves again? Why?

Yes, I enjoyed so many of the characters and would love to listen again to see if I can pull out clues that I overlooked during the first listen. I found the writing to be very rich, outstanding dialogue

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood on the Leaves?

Gosh...so many, I suppose when Reynolds returned home and asked his mother to fill in the blanks about the incident that took place when he was a kid- that whole portion was very memorable.

Which scene was your favorite?

All of the courtroom scenes. Loved the judge!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I enjoyed the testimony scene from Dr. Matheson's mother.

Any additional comments?

Could definitely see this as a feature film!

Blood on the Leaves will keep you listening.

I enjoyed this book and the colorful characters. It is an excellent contrast to modern day oppression and those of Jim Crow days when evil was a pastime for oppressors. The author teaches us that knowledge of the past events, can move us forward by breaking the chains of ignorance to past events.
