READ ´ The Personal History of Rachel DuPree REVIEW · YEEZY950.US Ð Ann Weisgarber Ann Weisgarber Ð 1 READ Isaac et Rachel Dupree avaient de uoi être fiers Premiers fermiers noirs des Badlands à la tête d'un domaine de 160 acres et d'un petit cheptel l'ancien soldat Buffalo et la petite cuisinière de Chicago se voyaient déjà faire jeu égal avec les pionniers blancs ua. I read author Ann Weisgarber s sopho novel The Promise a few years back and knew immediately that I must backtrack and read her debut The Personal History of Rachel Dupree nominated for an Orange Prize in 2009 Reading her first novel NOW seemed the perfect time as The Personal History of Rachel Dupree is slated for the big screen produced by Viola Davis who is also playing the lead I cannot wait to gather some girlfriends together to watch this Yes I m one of those people who wants to read the book first to compare Rachel Dupree will transport you to the unforgiving climate of South Dakota s Badlands and introduce you to a strong black woman a wife a mother a daughter a sister of iron will a woman ahead of her time in many ways She and her husband Isaac are among only a handful of African Americans staking a claim in the area You will feel the isolation the scratches of dryness in your own parched throat and feel the pangs of thirst these characters experience with the lack of rain You ll hear the wind you ll see the desolate plains Your heart will ache with the hardships of frontier living during the early 1900s And you will likely cryLayered thematically with insight about racism perceptions about women and their place in society their value and about war secrecy and sacrifice this is at its heart a story of man s ambition and what happens when it is all consuming This story also asks what is love But it s about so much it s about the American dream of land ownership it s about family transgressions grief and finding happiness in the smallest of pleasures It s a story about tough decisions and the long lasting conseuences of making themI was struck by this uote by Rachel in the novel Isaac hated Indians but that didn t make it right It didn t mean I had to It didn t mean I had to hold on to grievances that were never mine For those who enjoy emotionally laden beautifully rendered historical fiction strong female characters and themes about women s strength as well as first person point of view stories this is a book I highly recommendAnd guess what Weisgarber also has a new book coming in February 2019 called The Glovemaker It sounds eually wonderful You can bet it s on my TBR already SO looking forward to it
