    Disturbing History

    Set in 1958 in Atlanta, this book is a fictionalized account of the racist South and how Jews living there at that time were affected. The main character, teenaged Ruth Robb, has moved to Atlanta from Manhattan with her mother and younger sister Natalie to live with her Protestant maternal grandparents following the sudden death of her Jewish father. Ruth is faced with keeping her faith (her Protestant mother had converted to Judaism) a secret to fit in with her peers at the private Christian school in which she was enrolled and within their society, which was largely closed to Jews. The bombing of the synagogue (based on an actual event in 1958 Atlanta) pushes her to reveal her faith and to project her identity. I found this story very absorbing and read it in one day. It portrays a dark period in American History which sadly has not been eradicated. A very good read.
