This document testifies to Thomas Jefferson's true opinions on Africans as a race of people, which was denigrating and coarse. It may seem hopeless to have high quality, tasty meals with very little effort. Maybe she does in other books in this series, but this one missed out on developing her character too much. I'm glad I kept reading.

The Buffy cemetery scene. This book is easy to read, direct to the point and makes you want to take action. Do you think she would have walked out otherwise.

“When aspiring journalist Richard Keith is assigned to look into the arrest and conviction of a small town sheriff, he travels to a small Alabama town. At first, he is resented by local citizens who do not appreciate all his questions. But, not everyo...”

level of national news is the suspicion that a conspiracy was carried out by influential members of the small town to rid the county of a sheriff who apparently stepped on some toes in his efforts to clean up the corruption, a job for which he was elected to perform.Upon arrival, Richard encounters a citizenry that is resentful of a northern journalist coming to their town asking what they consider to be meddling questions. Fortunately, Richard soon meets some people of the town who befriend him, while at the same time suggesting that for his own well being he get on the next bus heading north. As he continues to pursue his mission, he meets with more and more resistance, until his very life becomes endangered.At the same time, Richard begins to fall in love with Jessie, a gorgeous Southern girl from the little town, who is a senior at the University of Alabama and is home for the summer helping her grandmother, Bertie, who runs the only inn in town. As he grows more fond of both Jessie and Bertie, who seems to be the de facto leader of the town, Richard continues to meet with stronger resistance from powerful townspeople, who obviously have something to hide.Richard eventually learns what he considers the truth of what happened, but by this time, he has come to like and respect some members of town, particularly Jessie’s family, to the point he feels he cannot ruin their lives by publishing the story in Life Magazine.Events continue to unfold as Richard finds himself caught between doing his duty and publishing the story, or protecting the family of the girl he loves. When the story is later published in Life Magazine anyway, albeit with no help from Richard, some members of the town turn against him even more, resulting in the necessity of drastic action in this dramatic story of prejudice and racism, as seen from the eyes of a New Yorker.
