The Pecan Man
by Cassie Dandridge Selleck

PBR Review Southern fiction at its best; beautifully developed characters, lyrical descriptions and a story with meaning and moral lessons to ponder. Ora Lee is strong willed, and itís a good thing because she must stand up for what she believes in as she tries to clear the name of the Pecan Man; a black man accused of murder. Itís a compelling novel that explores issues of race in the 1970s South while examining the meaning of friendship, family and life choices. Recommend.Back.
Talking Points: This is a story about racism in the 1970s South. It is also about friendships that step outside the boundaries of color and the true meaning of family, it is not just about those who share the same parents or bloodlines. The author addresses prejudice, revenge and bravery as well as many moral issues. Excellent book club pick.
PBR Reader Comments:
A book filled with wonderful characters and lots of southern charm. As you read you will find yourself challenged in many ways as the book explores the meaning of family and delves into racial issues and prejudices. Excellent book club choice. Recommend.
