All the ugly things of the world come together in this wonderfully written book.... fear, hate, death, loss. But the lovely things are in it too.... hope, love, forgiveness. Carolyn's story is powerful. Growing up in Alabama her family does their best to shield her from what the klan is doing in their community. She tells us of a bombing and her life afterwards, how she struggles with grief, disappointment, and trying to understand. I highly recommend this book.
