This book took by breath away!

I loved this book! It is A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines. It is a beautifully moving story about a young black man sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit in early 1940's Louisiana. In prison, he is aided by a black teacher that helps him to understand that he can die with dignity. Beautiful. Heartbreaking. This is definitely going on my personal list for top 10 books of all time.

Go to the library and check it out.
