Dreamers by Margaret Murray Review and Giveaway


Dreamers by Margaret Murray Review and Giveaway

This is a story set in the 60's in America during the Civil Right's era. I found the struggles of Annie a very young white woman, who loved a black man, Thomas very captivating. They are both dreamers, Thomas wanting to be an actor at all costs. He comes from a very poor background. His mother is raising his son , who he loves very much but knows he is better off with her. Annie , a talented violinist,coming from a much better background, leaves her family to continue studying at Julliard in New York. She finds Thomas when she gets there and they can't stay away from each other. He has kept secrets from her and is afraid it will keep them apart. I found their story captivating as they go through the world of drugs and the trials they have to face in that time period. The seedy side of living in a run down part of N.Y. is a fact of life for Thomas as he tries hard to get parts for plays that feature black actors. Annie and Thomas part ways and meet up 40 yrs. later to see where their dreams have taken them.

All in all- An interesting and provocative read.
