The Education of Dixie Dupree

by Donna Everhart

the-education-of-dixie-dupreeThe Education of Dixie Dupree was a difficult read because it deals with difficult topics–physical, mental, and sexual abuse, depression, anger and troubled family relationships. Although uncomfortable topics, they are handled with sensitivity by the author. This novel could just as easily have been called “The Secrets of Dixie Dupree” because the young Alabama girl Dixie is the the hub of so many secrets. Secrets she has to keep or are kept from her for a variety of reasons.

The book is well-written with good character development.  There are personal mysteries to be untangled that keep the reader looking forward to their resolution. The pace is appropriate, spending time when necessary but always keeping the story moving.  Although the book deals with hard topics and even though it is fiction, it is a story that needed to be told.

I would like to extend my thanks to netgalley.com and to Kensington Books for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

    It is my retirement “job” opening the door to more free online books. I love to read and I can’t go to the library, bookstore, or second hand shop in Mexico. It is a good compromise and I am thankful for the opportunity.
