I listened to this audiobook a month ago, but needed time to think before I wrote a review. Actually, I haven't been able to stop thinking about this book. Very touching and thought provoking. I lived in a small Southern town in the 70s. The descriptions of extreme racism and the efforts by some (few) whites to stop it feel correct based on my experiences.
Ora Lee Beckworth is telling a story at the end of her life. While she made some honorable decisions -- when it really mattered, I am still wondering if she did the right thing or not. That will be for you to decide after you listen. The Pecan Man's grace and dignity never waiver. His story is heartbreaking and inspirational. But did he do the right thing. I still don't know.
The 6 hour length of the story was perfect for this strong subject. I am glad I listened to it.

I loved every minute of this book. I love it when an author as a story to tell and just tells it without wasting words or using filler just to fill the page to make the book last longer than it needs to. I am now starting to get wary of audiobooks that are 14 or 16 hrs, etc. This audiobook is 6 hrs and the author uses all of those hours to pack each minute with very interesting story telling. It doesn't hurt that the narrator is top notch. I highly recommend this book.
