Book Review: The Sacred Place
This book was written by the same author of Perfect Peace, which I really liked. The Sacred Place, however, was just okay.
The story is very Emmett Till-esque: a 13 year old boy from Chicago visits relatives in 1955 Mississippi, "disrespects" a White woman, and is subsequently murdered. Sounds pretty straight forward right? Well, not so much. The book kinda lasts longer than it needs too. Just like his last book, the author draws on spirts, ancestors, and the supernatural in this book. There is even a Tom Hanks-Wilson situation. It was weird.
So, yall don't have to read this one unless it's on clearance on your Kindle.
Next Up: Mockingjay! (The final book in the Hunger Games series)
