Meet the Posts: Franny, Jim, Sylvia, and Bobby. Two weeks away from their life in Manhattan on the Balearic island of Mallorca sounds like a vacation in paradise. Joining the family is Bobby’s much older girlfriend Carmen, and Franny’s best friend Charles and his boyfriend, Lawrence. Told from the viewpoints of all characters, this story is filled with secrets, humor, betrayals, and wisdom.
Racial tension of the turbulent 60s provides the backdrop for this charming coming-of-age story. Liberty “Ibby” Bell finds herself literally dropped off at her grandmother Fannie’s doorstep. No color boundaries here, Fannie and the household servants all become family to her. Recommended to fans of The Help.
