Reader Suggest Southern Book

TXMommy over at Too Many to Count said, "Our book club read Cane River by Lalita Tademy this last month. It's the story of a Southern family, focusing on the women in the family. They were slaves and became progressively "whiter" as the generations past. It is historical fiction based on the author's family. You might want to add it to your list of suggestions."

Jenclair of A Garden Carried in the Pocket adds, "I read this 5 or 6 years ago and enjoyed it. Here is a link to some information about the community, which is right outside of Natchitoches, LA. And another link to a blogger who writes about it."
