Book review: Suitcase Full of Dreams by Hoy Kersh (9780982316511)

“There is a hardness to life that I couldn’t understand.” ~Hoy Kersh

Ms. Kersh’s wonderful prose brings me back to the first time I read Harper Lee’s, “To Kill a Mockingbird”.  Her descriptions of her family, her surroundings and growing up in the tumultuous South make you feel like you were right there beside her.  From her days in Catholic school, to her grandmother’s strong presence, to the civil rights movement, this book is Ms. Hersh’s journey toward a new life.

Thank you to Ms. Kersh and PR by the Book for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
