The Keepers of the House - Shirley Ann Grau - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Keepers of the House:

The secrets that happened in the Howland house.

My favorite Shirley Ann Grau quote from the book:

"The only secrets you had were the ones inside your head."

Questions to ponder while reading The Keepers of the House:

Do you know your family's history?

Why did you get married?

My review of The Keepers of the House:

Wow...the history of racial interactions.

So many secrets.

So many examples of how not to behave.
