Book Review of The Personal Librarian

The Personal Librarian
njmom3 avatar reviewed on + 1309 more book reviews

The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray does what I love best about historical fiction. It introduces me to a history I might never otherwise have learned. This book tells a story of surviving in a racist, segregated society and the compromises made to endure. It keeps me turning pages beginning to end and sends me on a search for the actual history that underlies the fiction.
