The Other Side of the Sun - Madeline L'Engle - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Other Side of the Sun:

A British woman learns the secrets of the North American South.

My favorite Madeline L'Engle quote from the book:

"Darkness is not a color." 

Questions to ponder while reading The Other Side of the Sun:

How do you deal with differences?

What would you have done?

My review of The Other Side of the Sun:

I loved the literary game (Does anyone want to play?)

A haunting and dark story.

A difficult tale to let go of.
