Tallulah James has left her Mississippi roots long behind when she receives disastrous news about her brother that calls her to come to his rescue. As soon as she arrives back, she is bombarded with memories from her difficult childhood but she also brings a new perspective. The Myth of Perpetual Summer is a story of a young girl struggling to find her place in the world amidst family secrets, family bonds, and small town prejudice, all against the backdrop of the civil rights movement.
I can't say enough about the way Susan Crandall tells a story. Her characters are simply spot on and stay with me long after I've read the last page. This was a five star read for me.
I received this book courtesy of Gallery Books though NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
