"It stinks of piss in the room," reads the grabby, gritty opening sentence of Rush Home Road. A five-year-old girl is noticing that stink: Sharla Cody, a neglected, mixed-race girl, unwanted by her trailer park mother Collette.

What Sharla actually smells isn't urine but the odor of a bouquet of small white flowers called Alyssum in another trailer. It belongs to Addy Shadd, "an old, cigarette-smoking coloured lady from the mud lane of the Lakeview trailer park, twenty miles outside of Chatham, Ontario." Addy and the runny-nosed little "half-and-half" Sharla will fall into a strange sort of mother-daughter relationship that will form the deep core of the novel, set in 1978. We discover bit by bit Addy's life story - in the end all parts fit together.

I finally read this fantastic, wonderful, awesome book. I like the style of writing, the persons in the book, the storyline ... everything :-) It is funny, sad, tragic ... and I cried a LOT. I also learned a lot about the history of black people in Canada.

Thank you so much for sharing this book with me.

Zählt für Kanada.
