I just finished Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand (see May 5th)—good beach read. She really has a sense of people. It's scary to me. Now I am reading Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas. Excellent. Reminds me of Mudbound by Hillary Jordan which every person should read. They are both great books—READ THEM!"
About Tallgrass from the author's website:
During World War II, a family finds life turned upside-down when the government opens a Japanese internment camp in their small Colorado town. After a young girl is murdered, all eyes turn to the newcomers. Rennie has just turned thirteen, and until this time, life has been predictable and fair. But the winds of change are coming and with them, a shift in her perspective and a discovery of secrets that can destroy even the most sacred things. Part thriller, part historical novel, Tallgrass is a riveting exploration of the darkest—and best—parts of the human heart.
