Brit Bennett has thought up a good plot and developed it very intelligently. Desiree and Stella Vignes are twins growing up in a small town in the deep South. They run away from home as teenagers and that is where the story starts. Desiree marries a colored man has a dark daughter Jude and Stella passes off as a White woman and marries a White man and has a White daughter. The two sisters don't meet at all but their daughters do. Bennett has written a compelling story. However, I was uncomfortable reading about some of the characters. I felt they added nothing to the story.
