So Laura tells Thad what she thinks. And Thad eventually realizes the error of his ways and takes a stand against them. I'm not seeing the problem. Actually, if she called him out publically and refused to interact with him at all, I think the result would have been that he'd dig in his heels and refuse to see how horribly wrong he was for joining the Klan in the first place.

Sorry, but I'm going to hijack the post for a minute. I honestly think one of the issues we are having in this country right now is that we are too ready to call names and cut people out of our lives when they don't agree with us. You will never win people to your point of view if you don't interact with them. And if you are labeling people and yelling at them, it is just going to entrench them in their way of thinking. You will get further with people with love and communication than you will with hatred (name calling) and ostracizing them. All you'll get with that are two sides ready to shout past each other but not listen to each other.

It's proof you've grown as a writer, Toni, and you were true to your character. Congratulations on your re-issue.

You've grown and our society has grown. I've ordered the book, and I'll read with open mind and heart.
I remember my high school class ('66) having shocked conversations about the very idea of inter-racial dating, and at that time, mixed marriage was illegal in Missouri. We have come a long way . . . with much further to go.

The giveaway is live now and through Monday. (Would have posted this sooner, but I've been out of the country.)
