This last one... Wench reminds me of The Help. It's set in the days before Civil Rights and it seems like it would be a great follow-up read for what we all just read.
I think I set up those pictures so that if you click on the picture of the book, it'll take you directly to the Barnes and Noble page which tells you about the book.
Let me know what you think! :)
p.s. I could not get the link to work right on Wench so instead, if you click the red word wench above, it'll take you there! ;)
