    MOBI Sanderia Faye Ò Mourner's Bench Epub ¹ Ò mourner's book, bench mobile, Mourner's Bench KindleAn important story well told Mourners Bench takes readers inside the early days of the civil rights movement by showing how residents of a small Arkansas town respond in the wake of mandated school integration and the marches led by Martin Luther King Jr The details of life in that town are rendered vividly and provide a rich backdrop for the action of the novel the return of Esther who intends to take up where the town's aging activists are getting ready to leave off The story is told by the eight year old daughter of Esther Sarah who is an old soul despite her age This makes for wonderful moments and a uniue take on major events The choice to use such a young narrator however also created challenges from time to time especially because she had to provide lots of background that a child would not necessarily do on the course of telling

    MOBI Sanderia Faye Ò Mourner's Bench Epub ¹ Ò mourner's book, bench mobile, Mourner's Bench KindleThis is the author's first book One of the reasons I wanted to read this book was that a friend of mine was reading it with a local book club The other reason I wanted to read this book was that the author is a local writer There was a lot of detail within this read I thought the author did a good job portraying the characters their life in the turbulent racial 60's and what life entailed in rural Arkansas at that time I have never heard of chairs where you sit in the front of the church until you get saved This was a hard concept for me to understand It is almost like someone forcing you to get religion I do understand that ther

    MOBI Sanderia Faye Ò Mourner's Bench Epub ¹ Ò mourner's book, bench mobile, Mourner's Bench KindleThis book is a uick summer read but not much The story was entertaining enough and I liked the way the narration alternated each chapter between Wim and Leandra I liked Leandra's 'southern mindset' and speech patterns and found myself talking like that in my mind However the conversations between characters were a little too scripted; language was just a little too witty and clever not like natural conversation Every conversation was a bit too perfect Also the love story was a little schmaltzy and overwrought But all in all it was still a story you wanted to stick with until the end
