However, I really don t remember disliking the male main character, Ash, as much Supposedly an interracial romance that happens in the first year of the book which spanned over 20 years Ash was an extremely arrogant, southern white male who always went all out for what he wanted Unfortunately, in 1936 in the segregated south he decided he wanted the colored summer help, Kitty, who was saving herself for marriage He seduced her and she was pregnant before the summer ended The rest of the interracial aspect was what happened after she became pregnant until the child was born, all within a year.Not wanting to spoil the book, you ll have to read it to discover what happens to them Just prepare to be disappointed Ash achieved every goal he set for himself but the means he used were revolting even being aware of the shameful practices of how most blacks were treated during that time period It sdisgusting knowing how Ash professed his love for Kitty and the promises he made He made excuses for doing so The rest of the book deals with a period almost 30 years later during the civil rights era The terrible times are glossed over a time of lynchings, separate but equal lies and how easily some whites justified their beliefs The overt actions have changed, but hearts are as hateful as ever, even in 2018.Of course, Ash gets what he wanted and even gets his HEA after a couple of weeks of his agonizing over a secret that should have never been a secret But, then he wouldn t have had the career he had at least not in the South I was left filling unfulfilled and extremely angry with Ash Not all whites acted as he did His brother never did and he was raised the same I regret rereading this book but it deserved being rated higher than a 2, barely ( Download Pdf
