Racism, heart and questions

Written in 1940 it speaks of racism in a vague way of it was just how it was. Seeing a family divided with it is an account many of us are taught in school. What struck me, being the a mother of a mixed race kiddo in 2021, is how than and now the target was on them. To be hounded and unsafe, many women have felt that and still we have systems in place that do harm as often as help for the victims. How many voices have we lost in slavery, oppression, genocide and just intolerance? It is well written and it has left me wanting and needing to learn more.

One of her best

I place this novel right up there with Cather's prairie novels, with its attention to details of the natural environment.
