The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Dry Grass of August - Anna Jean Mayhew - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Dry Grass of August:

How Jubie lost Mary Luther after a revival in the Jim Crow South.

My favorite quote from the book:

"There are always folks."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

How do you treat those who are different?

Have you ever made a serious mistake?

My review of the book:

A deeply engrossing story.

An evocative book about the Jim Crow South.

Tore my heart out.
