My Review of The Mayor’s Mission by Piper Huguley

51s6CMIRfBL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_

I am genuinely excited about this book.  The novel is historical fiction that is supremely well done and thought out. The book contains drama, romance, sorrow and joy and many other elements which are artfully arranged on a historical back drop!

The book centers around the married life of an African American couple who are living in the post-civil war south.  The husband, Virgil is a strong leader in his community.  He has taken  on the role of small business owner, black smith, mayor and regional political representative of his tiny closed community.  Having been born a slave in the south, he lacks the formal education that is his wife, Amanda has attained growing up in the north.  The two of them carefully navigate the tender alliance between the reality of their tiny community that is making steps towards education and civic duty, and the world around them that is not understanding or accepting of the changes regarding race and civil rights.  This uncomfortable attempt at progress puts the couple and their loved ones in a dangerous situation because of those who are not open to change or to allowing African Americans to enjoy any of the rights that had formerly been reserved for white citizens.
