Hello TTT Ladies,
“The Sweet Everlasting” By Judson Mitchell is simply amazing and very profound. The book is interwoven by the thoughts and moments by Ellis Burton. Mr Judson does an excellent job of bring out the confusion and hurt that Ellis felt.
What is so sad is that he was only in prison for six years, but his pain was a life time. Ellis in my opinion was never free when he left prison, he was severely mentally ill.
TTT ladies do you think that Susan should have told Ellis that she was bi-racial?
When he found out he called her a racial slur and insulted her gender, do you think that was a buried prejudice that he had and did not realize it?
His mother was drinking and grieving over the loss of her husband and she mistakenly in her drunken stupor thought that he was her father and attempted have sex with him, was she really drunk?
It scared him that he felt excited and ashamed? TTT Ladies lets talk.
TTT Ladies do you think his mental illness stopped him from forgiving Susan or he could not stand face the reality that she was bi-racial. His best friend Isaiah was Black, they were brothers in spirit.?
