Musing about Clover

~ by Dori Sanders, 1990, fiction (South Carolina), 184 pages

Clover is a 10-year old black girl from a small town in South Carolina.  She is forced to forge a new relationship with the white stepmother she hardly knows, when her father dies only hours after marrying the woman.

mus·ing / noun = a period of reflection or thought.  Example:  "My musing was interrupted by a knock on the door."

Musing about this 10-year-old

When we read fiction, we put ourselves in someone else's shoes.  Right now, I'm in the shoes of a child, learning what it feels like to live with a stranger of a different race.
