Review: Clover

User Review  - Amanda Ishtayeh - Goodreads

This felt more like an outline for a book rather than a finished project. You don't really feel the struggle of the race issue or the loss of the father in this book. Not great for me. Read full review

About the author (1990)

Dori Sanders was born in York County, South Carolina. Her father's farm, where her family still raises Georgia Belle and Elberta peaches, is one of the oldest black-owned farms in York County. Her father was a school principal and an author. She attended York County public schools and later studied at community colleges in Prince George's and Montgomery counties in Maryland. She does most of her writing during the winter months, in Maryland, where she is an associate banquet manager of a hotel near Andrews Air Force Base. In the growing season she farms the family land, cultivating peaches, watermelons, and vegetables, and helps staff Sanders' Peach Shed, her family's open-air produce stand. "Clover" is her first novel.
