โšœ๏ธBook Reviewโšœ๏ธ ๐‘ป๐’‰๐’† ๐‘ฝ๐’‚๐’๐’Š๐’”๐’‰๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐‘ฏ๐’‚๐’๐’‡ ๐’ƒ๐’š @britrbennett โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซ When I initially started to read this book, I read the first chapter and it wasnโ€™t the right time for me to read it. I am so happy I picked this book back up because the writing was phenomenal. Iโ€™m from Louisiana and I know of those small towns the twins were from. In fact, my family was from a town that no longer โ€œexistsโ€ on the map anymore. I was captivated in every way how the twins split, one becoming a white woman and the other kept to her roots and maintained she was indeed a black girl. Creoles live a lonely life, they never seem to fit in any category because of their โ€œyellow skinโ€. I loved that this went past multi generations and how the two nieces grew up with such different lifeโ€™s because of the color difference of the skin. This is a moving, touching and makes you realize just how important family is to you. No one can truly understand you like your family can. My only downside was that there wasnโ€™t that first chapter hook.
