I picked up this book because of bookclub, but I didn’t finish in time to discuss it. I was not too sure about the topic, because of the way it was presented to me.
I loved the book! It was written from the perspective of two different women, with two different outlooks. Some of it came from race, but I feel the majority of it came from class.
One woman was raised in a culture where your talent was recognized, not how much money you could make. The other was raised with money. One felt that each person was living their own life. The other felt that if you weren’t excelling, you needed a push.
It was a wonderful book with great characters and a solid storyline. I enjoyed almost every moment of it. It was definitely worth reading.
