REVIEW The Personal History of Rachel DuPree

Ann Weisgarber à 1 FREE READ FREE READ Õ The Personal History of Rachel DuPree F Rachel DuPree is an award winning debut novel with incredible heart about life on the prairie as it's rarely been seen Reminiscent of The Color Purple as well as the frontier novels of Laura I. This is the kind of book that makes me joyful as a reader It s immediately engrossing it illuminates a life that is otherwise foreign to me and paints real landscapes and situations I ve never experienced Set in 1917 at a ranch in South Dakota by the Badlands the story is told by Rachel DuPree an African American woman who married an ambitious man whose entire identity and self value is tied up in the land he owns The book opens with a punch a longstanding drought reuires the extreme measure of lowering the smallest child into the ranch s well in order to scoop up what water may be had From the beginning Rachel is torn between desperately wanting the water to keep her children and livestock alive yet wracked with horror at her acuiescence of this act This book is emotional but not out of any lurid or melodramatic scenes instead the oomph comes from the hard reality of life for Rachel and her children Alternating between Rachel s present and flashing back to how she ended up in South Dakota in 1917 we learn about two hard determined people Rachel and her husband Isaac and the results of a gamble and a hope The grim basis of Rachel and Isaac s marriage was what grabbed at my heart the most it was at times beautiful and at times horrifically cruel But I could completely appreciate Rachel s loyalty and the choices she made because she was such a real character Race understandably features in this novel the discussion of skin color shade among the society African Americans in Chicago the perception of Booker T Washington and Ida B Wells in the African American community and the us vs them story created by the homesteaders and settlers to differentiate themselves from the Native Americans on the reservations in South Dakota Class and education also affect the story and characters as both Rachel and Isaac want something for themselves and their children but have wildly differing ideas as to what that means Again what was so compelling for me as I read was this marriage and Rachel s challenge to balance her happiness her children s well being and her husband s wishes with what she thinks is right Upon finishing I immediately thought two things one that one should vacation to the Badlands because they are staggeringly gorgeous but OMG I never want to live there again and two that I wanted there to be another book Although the ending of this one was perfect I could have used another 300 pages or a second volume to follow Rachel and her family some I was reminded a bit of Sigrid Undset s Kristin Lavransdatter a favorite of mine that I never wanted to end This would make an excellent book club selection since the themes of family obligation compromise in marriage and prejudice are common ones Apparently this book has been optioned for a film so read it now before the movie is released
