Mudbound

My colleague and loyal blog reader Linda recommended Mudbound by Hillary Jordan and I got it from the library. Historical fiction isn't usually my favorite, but this book was intriguing from the start.

An honest and unflinching look at rural life in the Mississippi Delta immediately following World War II, this book alternates narrators with convincing and terrifyingly real characters. A book about families, secrets, and finding one's own truth, Mudbound is not to be missed. 33/100
