Book: "The Color of Water"

I first read this book about a decade ago at the insistence of a co-worker who thought it was wonderful. She was right. James McBride is a bi-racial man whose mother was white, southern, and Jewish. She fled her abusive father for New York, married a black man with whom she had 8 children, and immersed herself in the black religious community in Brooklyn.

My rating: ***** (out of 5)
