Robin Miles is a performer who never disappoints, and this novel is another opportunity for her to shine. OCTOBER SUITE illustrates the life of October Brown, a young African-American teacher who loves her job and the independence it affords her in the Midwest of the 1950s. October’s past has been bittersweet; she is haunted by the sudden death of her mother and the disappearance of her father yet buoyed by the support of her aunts and her sister. Her future looks bright until she is won over by the charms of a married man, a man who leaves her pregnant and afraid. A strong, well-developed plot makes this novel a pleasure to hear, and Miles brings the cast of characters to life with her skill as a reader.
