The Book of Harlan by Bernice L. McFadden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My indication of a good book is putting it down and finding that the story still plays in my head, that the characters cling to me. This book is definitely a good book. Haunting, engrossing, and ridiculously well-written, The Book of Harlan was a fast-paced read infused with history and soaked in jazz. Truly a must read and my top read for 2016 so far!! Ms. McFadden has long been one of my favorite authors and this book is one of the reasons why. Read it!
