Mudbound - Hillary Jordan Mudbound by Hillary Jordan is a extremely well written thought provoking novel. The literary structure of this book is very compelling, telling the same story from the perspective of the different characters really brings out the emotion of this Novel.

The characters are fully developed and very real and I was able to visualise each and every one of them. A gripping story of race relations, families, marriage, and war, a story that I found heartbreaking and shocking.
As I always say "Its good to be shocked every now and then".

I read this as a book club read and I think it will make for a great discussion.
