Sallee is a little girl being raised by her family’s black maid, Ethel. Her mother has checked out, her father is leaving her mother. People are angry with their family for either being friendly toward blacks or because her father is building a shopping center, or maybe both. There’s a lot of drinking going on, too.
Apron Strings by Mary Morony is told mostly from Sallee’s point of view with a chapter here from Ethel’s point of view. Mostly the book is just depressing. There are quite a few spelling and grammar errors, particularly in the second half of the book. It was okay, but I didn’t really enjoy it and it left me feeling cold.
