Yellow Crocus - Laila Ibrahim
Found this book on NetGalley and it was a perfect fit for the Color Coded Reading Challenge, so I let it jump over some of the other TBR books. I enjoyed the story of two women, one a free white woman and the other an African American slave, whose lives are entwined. It was an enjoyable, fast read, despite descriptions of pregnancy, labor, childbirth, and nursing that were a little intense for me (I don't have kids). It made an interesting companion read to To Be a Slave, as a fictionalized account of life in the southern US when slavery was still practiced.
