"The newest in a long line of brilliant African-American female authors, Dori Sanders enters the literary scene with Clover, the story of a ten-year-old girl living on her family’s South Carolina farm. Written from the child’s perspective, this engaging novel offers the upbeat and precocious narrator’s wealth of innocence, and her moments of wisdom beyond her years. Clover centers upon the relationship between young Clover and her new stepmother, Sara Kate, the white woman who married Clover’s father only hours before his death in an auto accident. Thrown together by tragedy, and barely knowing each other, these two unwitting partners overcome their loved one’s death, their suspicions, and fears of one another, in this endearing and unforgettable book."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

Corners slightly bumped, jack shows some minor edge wear. Text block is square but front board is wider than the back, giving the appearance of a spine slant. Errata sheet for page 218 laid in. A tight, attractive copy.

"The only child of South Carolina tenant farmers and still in her teens when she marries, Mae Lee Barnes saves her wages from a job at a munitions plant, buys farmland of her own, and waits for her husband's return from WW II. He returns. Then he departs, returns, departs. Eventually he is gone for good, but not until Mae Lee is left with five children to raise and a farm to run, by herself. She isn't Gifted, Brilliant, All-Knowing; she is - well, Mae Lee Barnes is simply Indomitable. And while she is going about her life, the lives of black people and white people, the rural community and little town she retires to are changing. Without sermons, without pronouncements, Dori Sanders tells a story about ordinary, everyday people taking part in a momentous transformation involving ways of heart and mind."; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
