Dear Author's Jia reviews Scandal in Copper Lake by Marilyn Pappano

This brings me to the aspect I liked best: the treatment of race and class in the context of interracial relationships in a small, deep Southern town. It’s not glossed over or brushed aside. Anamaria comes from a long line of women used to being kept as secret lovers to what often are rich, white men. Robbie comes from a background where he’s expected to marry a blue-eyed blond and have a proper, class-appropriate marriage. That’s the point at which their relationship starts so watching their respective outlooks change — Anamaria wonders why she can’t marry the man she loves hard and unwisely and Robbie wonders if marrying a blue-eyed blond is what he really wants when the future children he imagines are all daughters who look like Anamaria — was the most engrossing part of the novel for me. It’s not ever preachy or overt but it’s there and I found that very realistic given their respective backgrounds. (read more)
