Jake's Hand 1. Jake's Hand

   (2 reviews)

Two college men who have volunteered to tutor black kids for the 1969 summer in the South grow more and more attracted to one another. But the summer ends before they realize the full extent of their love for one another, and they go separate ways—one to get married and have children, the other to join the military and go to Vietnam.

I've just finished reading this (thanks for another otherwise entirely unproductive morning!) and I think you should too.  The story is beautifully crafted, with a gentle pace that never quite slows down enough for you to get bored, just impatient to find out how things go next.  And of course, how they go is totally worth finding out on your own, so I'm not going to spoil that here.

Spoiler

No, I said I wasn't going to spoil it here :) 

 

@Headstall has already taken "mesmerising" and "captivating" (and frankly, I'd trust his choice of words more than my own), so I'll go with wonderful.  The characters are richly formed and developed, and (for the most part anyway) entirely believable.  I guess that's where the 'wonder' of wonderful really comes in.

I read this a long time ago, but I've never forgotten it. Mesmerizing is a good way to describe this story. Or maybe captivating. Okay, both. I was both mesmerized and captivated. The characters come to life, right from the beginning. I highly recommend this one. :)
