Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League

Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League - Jonathan Odell 3.5 Stars

Oh I do love a novel set in the deep south and Miss Hazel and the Rosie Parks league didn't disappoint as its a story that shows how how the power and determination of one woman can inspire and transform the lives of a town.
Set in the Delta town of Delphi, Mississippi two different but truly memorable women one white and one black form an unlikely frindship and give us an insight into the roots of the civil rights movement in the south.

The characters in this novel are beautifully drawn and the reader forms an immediate bond with Hazel and Vida. The writing is vivid and I found myself drawn in by the rich dialogue and the wonderful sense of time and place
