Descripción del libro

31 de agosto de 2006
It's June 1947 in Riverton, Alabama. Ten-year-old Graham and his pals, Blake and Todd, are fresh out of school for the summer and don't have a care in the world. Or do they? The annual slingshot battle, using chinaberries as ammo, is only a few weeks away and they need a plan. Last year their tree house was demolished by the mock orange cannon of the Ramar Renegades. Following her sister's death in February, Ruth St. John has been alone in her ante-bellum house. With Rachael gone, the old woman develops an interest in the outside world, especially the "roughnecks" she sees through her window. Gayle Freemont, a young black professor at the Negro college, wants to have a wife and children but is reluctant to get trapped in the South where he is just another "boy." The childless wife of a prominent architect, Jane Forrester is entering menopause and fears that life is passing her by. She resents her husband's selfish and domineering behavior and longs to find happiness before it's too late. Graham's father Pete is the county school superintendent. He considers himself quite progressive with respect to race relations--until the day he has to put his progressive ideas to the test. Priscilla Andrews teaches at the elementary school. Her acne-scarred face has caused some of the boys to call her Worm Face behind her back. But she maintains her professional bearing and decides that she and black people share a "skin problem." Crayton Turner pedals his Popsicle cart as fast as he can, trying to reach the construction site before the workers leave-which proves to be a fateful decision.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Chinaberry Summer 26 de diciembre de 2006
Por Mary S. Wilburn - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
Inside its inviting cover, Chinaberry Summer takes the reader back to those long sunny days of the '40s, when, in the South, more than the weather was heating up. While the boys schemed and planned for the battle that would climax the summer, they were gaining insight into the more intense battle between integrationists and segregationists in rural Alabama.

You won't regret reading this one.

A marvelous travel adventure "back in time" to 1947 in rural Alabama where the status of racial inequality is clearly explored from several viewpoints. A must read for someone who didn't grow up in the South and wants to understand why attitudes took a long time to change. Great writing.
