Gods in Alabama – Audio CD Review

Gods in Alabama

There was something about this book jacket that attracted me. It had an air of mystery.

I listened to it and have to say that the jacket text hardly touched the book and its story.

The book follows a girl from high school in Alabama to teaching college literature in Chicago. Arlene does something so terrible that she leaves her loving family and exiles herself for 10 years. She (white) then brings her future husband Burr (black) to a family get together with a damn the torpedoes approach.

The book has great character development. It tells Arlene’s story warts and all.

It opens your mind to new ideas about the South, race and love.

Enjoy it!
