I loved this book too much to give up my copy (for now anyway) so when I saw this copy at my favorite thrift store I grabbed it. It is set in South Carolina in 1964. Fourteen year old Lily, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed, is the main character. When Lily's fierce-hearted "stand-in mother," Rosaleen, insults three of the town's fiercest racists, Lily decides they should both escape to Tiburon, South Carolina--a town that holds the secret to her mother's past.

I have already read this book, but I thought I would put my review on it anyway.
This was very good. I didn't want to put it down. The characters feel so real, and I was sad when the book ended. It would be nice if there was some kind of a sequel.
The whole Mary-worship idolatry thing was bizarre, however. Mary was a human being, often she is called the Virgin Mary, but she was not a virgin her whole life. She had other children. She was never made a deity by God, as nobody has, and nowhere does the Bible say to worship her or pray to her.
This is another book that deals with racism. I appreciate reading about the problems with racism, because I have been rather sheltered from it, yet upon reading about it, it has brought to my attention racist behavior that I have witnessed in the past, but not realized it for what it was.
Excellent book, I definitely recommend it.
This is going back into the box.
