I have an announcement from the book world! Michele Gorman, pen name for author Jamie Scott is re-launching her book Little Sacrifices with her real name. I will be reviewing Little Sacrifices on September 11, 2013, so be sure to come back and check out my thoughts, but for now here is the press release:
When the Powell family moves to Savannah Georgia in the late 1940s, they hope against hope that they’ll be welcomed. But they’re Northerners and worse, they’re civil rights advocates almost a decade too early. The American South is deeply segregated.
At first their daughter, May, can pretend they’re the same as everyone else. It means keeping quiet when she knows she should speak up, but it’s worth the sacrifice to win friends. Unfortunately her parents are soon putting their beliefs into action. And when they wake to find that they’re the only family on the block with a Ku Klux Klan cross blazing on their front lawn, the time comes for them to finally decide between what’s easy and what’s right.
