How much would you risk to stand up for your beliefs?
When Duncan and Sarah Powell move with their daughter, May, to Savannah Georgia in 1947, they hope against hope that they’ll be welcomed. But they’re Yankees and worse, they’re civil rights advocates almost a decade too early.
At first May can pretend they’re the same as everyone else. It means keeping quiet when she knows she should speak up, but it’s worth the sacrifice to win friends. Unfortunately her parents are soon putting their beliefs into action. And when they wake to find that they’re the only family on the block with a Ku Klux Klan cross blazing on their front lawn, the time comes for them to finally decide between what’s easy and what’s right.
Author Michele Gorman is known for her romantic comedy novels such as 'Perfect Girl' (click here to read my review) and 'The Curvy Girls Club' (click here to read my review); both reads which I really enjoyed. However, Michele has also released a completely different kind of novel under the pseudonym Jamie Scott, titled 'Little Sacrifices.' The book is described as an atmospheric coming-of-age novel set in the 1940s segregated American South. I'm already fascinated by the blurb and look forward to giving the book a chance. I think Michele Gorman's writing is great and it's always interesting to check out different kinds of reads, so hopefully I'll be able to review the book for my blog soon!
