Mudbound by Hillary Jordan

"What we can't speak, we say in silence." - Jamie McAllan

Told from the perspective of 8 different characters, Mudbound presents a portrait of two families torn by prejudice, post-WWII trauma and the hardships of farming in the deep south in the sharecropping system. This is the type of book where you know tragedy is coming, the characters don't let you go, and when the climax hits it is even more emotional than you expected. Another recommended read.
