Review

A page-turning read that conveys a serious message without preaching ― Observer

This is storytelling at the height of its powers: the ache of wrongs not yet made right, the fierce attendance of history made as real as rain, as true as this minute. Hillary Jordan writes with the force of a Delta storm -- Barbara Kingsolver

A hard-bitten drama set in the Deep South in the middle of the last century – I immediately thought of William Faulkner …. Passions explode. It grips. ― Evening Standard

Mudbound by Hillary Jordan is a powerful and relevant read in this Trump era where jingoism and racism is at fever pitch… The American struggle against Nazism and racism couldn’t be more pertinent to our times and this book depicts the unfairness and cruelty of prejudice and racial discrimination with blinding insight. If you are a fan of gripping and deeply resonant novels like Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying and The Help ,then I highly recommend you to buy MudboundBookRiot

Evocative and eloquently told … Mudbound is a powerful and heart-breaking story of injustice, race and family; and though it’s not always an easy read, it is ultimately an important one ― Culturefly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
