Journal Entry 1 by creativeMGE from Kensington, Maryland USA on Tuesday, April 24, 2007
This book was one of three (!) gifted by local authors to the BookCrossing table (manned by SqeakyChu, crrcookie and myself) at the Day of the Book Festival in Kensington. From the author's note: "This novel was born in workshops at the Writer's Center in Bethesda, Maryland..." I love being able to read a local writer... thanks again Squeaky for getting us together for this wonderful day! :-)

From the back cover: Frank S. Joseph's debut novel To Love Mercy confronts race and ethnicity in segregated Chicago in the late 1940s. The book follows two boys - one black, one white - lost in the city together and exploring with innocent enthusiasm while their families tear each other apart in fear. Racial tensions thread through the novel and personal choices are made with a shattering clarify against the pressures of the city. Received a Reader Views 2007 Reviewers Choice Award.

Plan to read this and ray it out (Squeaky and cookie are first up :-).
