Little Sacrifices by Jamie Scott @expatdiaries

Little Sacrifices

How much would you risk to stand up for your beliefs?

When Duncan and Sarah Powell move with their daughter, May, to Savannah Georgia in 1947, they hope against hope that they’ll be welcomed. But they’re Yankees and worse, they’re civil rights advocates almost a decade too early.

At first May can pretend they’re the same as everyone else. It means keeping quiet when she knows she should speak up, but it’s worth the sacrifice to win friends. Unfortunately her parents are soon putting their beliefs into action. And when they wake to find that they’re the only family on the block with a Ku Klux Klan cross blazing on their front lawn, the time comes for them to finally decide between what’s easy and what’s right.

Praise for Little Sacrifices:

What a wonderful surprise this was, from a new author to me. Jamie Scott's writing pulled me in from page one and reminded me very much of The Secret Life of Bees.

Wonderful and powerful story

It is one thing to talk about doing what is right; but it is very difficult to actually follow thru and do the right thing. Wonderful story - terrific author!!!

A comfort read! Like comfort food only no calories.
