Is there anything better than a female multi-generational story? Nope.
I also loved how Memphis was a character crucial to the story. I’ve only seen Memphis through the eyes of a frequent visitor, but seeing it through the eyes of the North women gave me a whole new perspective for the city. There’s also just something extra special when you read a book set somewhere you know.
I loved diving deeper into each woman’s story – Hazel, Miriam, August, and Joan – but I’d love to get more of May’s story. There was so much complexity and beauty in her character that left me wanting to get to know her better.
My favorite part was seeing the community of support these women and their neighbors built for their daughters.
