The Book Club Review

Oct 4, 2020

Identical twin sisters Stella and Desiree Vignes grow up together in a small, southern black community where the inhabitants have noteably light skin. When they run away at the age sixteen they make very different choices. One will marry and then return to her hometown, the other will live her life passing for white, knowing she can never go back. What will happen, though, when the next generation of their families connects?
Race, identity, family, love, belonging, all thoughtfully woven through a compulsive page-turner that had both Laura and Kate’s book clubs talking... We may just have found the perfect book club book. Did we have anything bad to say about it? Listen in to find out.
Booklist: A Drop of Patience by William Melvin Kelley, Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo and Passing by Nella Larsen
