A Place For Ida offers a fresh insight into racism and coming of age through the eyes of a child. Abandoned by her parents at a tender age, she was left to be raised by her grandmother. By the age of thirteen, Ida longed for touch and affection. Everyone was already telling her she was a heartbreaker...with the strong shapely muscular legs of a stallion. It was pathetic the way she forced herself upon men.

Billy, her first true love, would send her life into a whirlwind of emotions, causing a sea of passion that Ida hardly had the capacity to control herself. During the early 1960's when the world was changing so fast, Ida tried her best to surpass time.

English Ruler ARC Bookclub (January 22, 2006)-This story details the trials and times of young Ida Jenkins. Set in south Carolina during the 1960's, "A Place for Ida" makes vivid the segregation of blacks and whites and the trauma of racism while telling a poignant strory of a black girl looking for acceptance and love. Ida goes through so much in this book, much more than many women do in their entire lives: one could easily be brought to tears reading of her plights.

The cover is simple yet stunning and the title tells of the story in itself. "Ida" is proof, first time author Patricia Richardson has a flair for the art of writing. The editing or lack thereof was the only drawback to this strongly written story. Exellent read.
