I waited for most of the book for Coralee and Beny to at least have some peace but didn’t get that until the epilogue. If you continue pllumville use this site we will assume that you are happy with it. And in this genre that deserves HUGE props. The emotions expressed in this story are very well developed and believable.

Being Plumville

The dialogue is con Brilliant Read Wow I certainly recognize the ingrained racism of the bbeing characters and their total lack of awareness of the experience of being Black in the South.

My lack of enjoyment was more tied to the unavoidable angst tied to the subject matter and the fact that there wasn’t a whole lot of time spent on plumvill ROMANCE and relationship progression. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this book. I felt the ending was abrupt as well. View all 4 comments.

Being Plumville by Savannah J. Frierson

Coralee brought him closer to her. However, it is not acceptable that Benny should feel that llumville about Ceelee, because Ceelee is black, and Benny has expectations that he must meet for plumvilpe family and for Plumville. There were a few issues I didn’t really understand. Her characters, black and white, reflect the social norms that were a part of my experience, although my family did not have a cook, and I did not have any opportunity to ever associate with Black children my age.

That it’s okay for them to call you ugly names, and you have to bite your tongue and deal with it. Frierson didn’t make benig any of that angst.


If you’re one of the few who haven’t, hopefully, I can persuade you to pick it up. I personally knew two inter-racial couples who had to hide their relationship by having others pick them up and meeting up later to be together. The author i I met this very young author at the Black Ink author festival in Charleston, SC last month, and plumvile hearing her answers to some very p,umville panel discussion questions, I put her book on hold at the public library.

Coralee Simmons is determined to make it out of Plumville with a diploma in her hand and dignity in her stride, despite a social climate determined to stifle both.

This isn’t pretty for people, it wasn’t in the 60’s and it still isn’t for some couples even today. You’re given them from birth, and anything that could possibly make you break them is removed from your life-even if it’s your best friend. Being Plumville tells the love story between long lost friends Benjamin and Coralee.
