If you are looking for a plot driven page turner, this is not it, but if you are looking for a lovingly crafted, intimate portrait of a young woman, you have found exactly what you are looking for Voigt s books are not full of fast, thrilling action, but a quiet view of young people as they learn and grow and figure themselves out.In Come a Stranger, Mina is a young, talented black ballerina at a time when such a thing was unheard of After receiving a scholarship to summer dance camp, she learns about things of which she had never been conscious before classical music, complete creative expression, and subtle racism Upon returning home, she finds her world different because she herself has changed And when her new world crashes around her, she opens her heart to her home, and to a deep, respectful love of a visiting pastor To give him the ultimate gift, she befriends Dicey Tillerman, and in doing so, gives herself and her family a gift they could not have foreseen.Voigt s characters are always impeccably written, and true deep down in their very cores Fans of Dicey s Song will love watching the way the plots of the books interweave, and how Voigt illuminates the inner workings of Mina s motivations There are certainly plot lines that might leave some scratching their heads How exactly are we supposed to read Mina s relationship with Tamer Shipp but Voigt has never pretended that life can be wrapped up in a neat package and topped with a bow A lovely read I couldn t put it down.
