The Turner House

Review:   This probably wouldn’t have come across my radar without the Detroit connection and might have languished on my TBR shelf if it hadn’t turned up at my local library in the front area new book shelves–one of the best (and most dangerous) areas in the library. The Turner House is the story of … Continue reading

The Turner House by Angela Flournoy
