Date 06 Aug 2019Many thanks for the ARC provided by my Book Angel I seem to ben a roll reading historical fiction especially books about the 1960s We Are All Good People Here starts in the 1960s and moves forward tracking two women that meet as college freshmen Despite pposite backgrounds they bond So much f this brought memories flooding back to me White totally captures the times the racial ineuities the sexism the politics At first I worried that this was going to be women s lit fluff and the characters would be caricatures But White surprised me There are some hard core scenes here ne f which caused me to lose all respect for Eve A respect I never did retrieve especially as she seems to move from just following I only Like the Fingers of the Guy I Hate, Vol. 1 one manr another Flip side I found Daniella to be totally relatable as she seeks to fight first the sexism and then the racism The Whistle Pig of the day The story drags in the middle as we veer fromne generation to the
