The Color of Secrets by Lindsay Ashford
Book Review: 5 out of 5 star rating
Lovely book about the consequences of secrets throughout generations of a family. This is a love story of the kind that many experienced during World War II – lonely GIs off fighting in a strange country, finding romance with white women, the mixed children that resulted and the search for identity these children undertook and the bigotry they encountered.
This is a particularly touching story and very well written. The secrets that start from fear and shame grow and intertwine the lives of three generations. The author has created sympathetic characters and a story that is passionate, sad and disturbing, yet full of hope and forgiveness. The book pulled me in and compelled me to keep reading. The author has written a story that will touch the hearts of those who read it.
An ARC of this book was given to me in return for an honest review by the publisher through NetGalley.
