Connie May Flower
Sugar Cage

Pre-loved soft cover

Such a gorgeous powerhouse of a book. I really enjoyed reading it and am not sure I want to leave it yet. Connie May Fowler has the gift of description, she brings the people and places in her book to life for the reader. I basically fell in love with every main character despite their human frailties, maybe even more so because of them. There is a lot of redemption in this book, a lot of places where one has to forgive and understand. This is true of the characters but also of the history as it covers a time of huge change in our country in relationships between black and white people. There is magic and power in this book and it is not just the hoodoo, although that provides the magical realism and is used, I think, to show how different black and white were emotionally and practically, and how in the end that makes no difference in love or worship of God.
Starting after WWII, maybe 1948 or so, the story starts with 2 honeymooning white couples and a black maid working at the motel where the couples meet and become friends. Please click here to ask a question
