Y’all know I love a multigenerational story! This story’s atmosphere really stuck with me as a Texas transplant in Illinois. The juxtaposition of Chicago & Memphis felt resonant & apt. This book felt to me like a quilt made up of beautiful images so intensely described you could basically smell the lemon meringue pie, brilliantly woven relationships among characters who jumped off the page, and an atmosphere that felt as thick as the humid southern air in the summer and brittle as the cold during a Midwest winter. Can’t wait to see what else Tara M. Stringfellow creates next!

This is the story of three generations of North women. The time lines move around to slowly reveal the back story of each of the characters.

The women in this book are just incredible, resilient and strong. I fell in love with all of them, they each broke my heart and put back together again and just didn’t want this book to end.

This isn’t the easiest to read in places and I would absolutely recommend checking out the TW on this book before going in.

Thank you @tandemcollectiveuk and @johnmurrays for my copy as part of the #memphisreadalong
