The Secrets of Newberry Novel Giveaway Review

The Secrets of NewberryI just recently finished reading, The Secrets of Newberry by Victor McGlothin. 

From the back cover:

For Ivory Bones Arcineaux and Julian Bynote, life in 1950s New Orleans couldn't be sweeter. Friends since they met in an illegal gambling house in Newberry, Louisiana, they have their pick of all the fine women, good food, and hot nights they can handle. They seem to have it made-especially Julian who begins to make a new life for himself after meeting the beautiful, classy Magnolia Garbo at a social. But both men are about to find out that letting the good times roll can be deadly when a simple robbery goes wrong and Julian witnesses Bones murdering a man in cold blood.

My Take on the Book:
I personally loved this book.  The setting is 1950s deep south.  I loved the historical telling of the story of life of African Americans from every day life on the plantation to the going on of big city life.  The book took my breath away a few times as I gasped at the secrets being exposed. The characters were well developed and I couldn't help but have empathy for all of them.  The book includes a Reading Group Guide which put the book over the top!  This book would be great for a book club!  My favorite quote came toward the end.  "Silence was the key to locking the door on family history, put away but not soon forgotten." What a true statement that most of us can identify.
