This story touched on the very real aspects of inter-race relations and how very often your mind can over-rule your heart to your own detriment. It shows not only the taboo associated with inter-race relations, but how denying your heart (in both love and career) can not only hurt yourself, but the people around you when you no longer have the strength to deny your heart’s desire.
"the best part of the book is the young lovers’ trying to convince each other why their union would destroy their fathers." -.
