Several of our participants read and reviewed Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas for the WWII reading challenge. Here are excerpts from their reviews; click the links to read their complete reviews.
Hilarie from Never Not Reading says:
Dallas created some memorable characters in the Stroud family, all of whom were individuals I would love to meet in real life. She also did an excellent job of illustrating the fear and paranoia that some members of the white population of a small and isolated town would feel in such a situation.
Diane from Bibliophile By the Sea says:
This is a heart warming coming of age story.
Helen from A Reading Collection says:
I would still recommend this book since some of the characters were fairly interesting enough. It wasn’t bad, but if you’re like me who loves character development in the story, it’s limited in this book.
Nise’ from Under The Boardwalk says:
Part thriller, part historical novel, Tallgrass is a riveting exploration of the darkest—and best—parts of the human heart.
Serena from Savvy Verse & Wit says:
Tallgrass is more than a coming of age story; it also touches upon the harm caused by wrong-headed government policies, the fear that leads to prejudice and hatred, and the impact a war can have on everyone.
