Like ripping a bandaid off a wound, this story did just that. 

Ruth, a widowed African-American nurse is told not to touch a baby. Why? Because of Ruth’s skin color. The new-borne has problems and Ruth disregards the order, trying to save the babies life. The baby dies.

This story will stay with me for a long time. Emotional, troubling and powerful.

I enjoy Jodi’s writing style. Each chapter, a different character. 

“Grace to say yes, the right to say no.”

“People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” Nelson Mandela

To say I enjoyed this book would be wrong. I experienced it and I’m grateful to have changed in the process. America needs to read this book for healing.
