Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Dani from Pen to Paper where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added, that we can’t wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.
I havent join the meme for some time now and its about time, don`t you think?
I`m currently reading The healing by Jonathan Odell and I love books about slavery because I find them very interesting and the book I have chose to the meme today is a book I just put on my Wishlist on Goodreads today actually.
Sugar by Jewell Parker Rhodes
about the book
Ten-year-old Sugar lives on the River Road sugar plantation along the banks of the Mississippi. Slavery is over, but laboring in the fields all day doesn’t make her feel very free. Thankfully, Sugar has a knack for finding her own fun, especially when she joins forces with forbidden friend Billy, the white plantation owner’s son.
Sugar has always yearned to learn more about the world, and she sees her chance when Chinese workers are brought in to help harvest the cane. The older River Road folks feel threatened, but Sugar is fascinated. As she befriends young Beau and elder Master Liu, they introduce her to the traditions of their culture, and she, in turn, shares the ways of plantation life. Sugar soon realizes that she must be the one to bridge the cultural gap and bring the community together. Here is a story of unlikely friendships and how they can change our lives forever.
I`m so looking forward to read this book,I prefer to read it in norwegian, but anyway I am going to read it.
