We Are All Welcome Here

18th July 2006

We Are All Welcome Here: A NovelOne feature of Berg’s writing that I really appreciate is her unique plot lines. For example, this book focuses in large part on racial tensions in Mississippi during the 60’s. Many books have been written about this topic, but Berg discusses the topic through the eyes of a 14 year old girl, who is living with her single mother, who has been paralyzed by polio. This family dynamic makes this book stand out from many others with similar themes.

I usually enjoy Berg’s books. My one criticism is that her strong female characters are usually portrayed against very weak male characters.
