Publisher Comments:

"Warmly engrossing...Sanders writes with wit and authority in this unusual gem of a love story."

CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Clover is a 10-year old black girl from a small town in South Carolina, whose life changes forever when her father dies and she is forced to forge a new relationship with the white stepmother she hardly knows. A beautiful, trenchant story of family lost and found, CLOVER is a unque and heartfelt reading experience for all ages.

Review:

"Clover fits the stereotypical first-novel mold. When it's good, it's very good, and when it's bad, it's dreadful. Fortunately, the good outweighs the bad as Ms. Sanders has the gift of using a child's voice and point of view without awkwardness or affectation. Clover is a young black girl whose father dies shortly after he marries a white woman. The new stepmother is determined to do her duty by Clover even as Clover's hostile family clan is determined to do theirs; Clover becomes a kind of bewildered hostage as she struggles with her own loss and identity. Ms. Sanders' greatest problem is in her dialogue, which she often contrives in order to further the plot. But, Clover is an authentic and credible piece of writing, introducing a new novelist with a great deal of promise." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
