In Sweetwater (2013), Robin M. Boylorn presents an intricate look at the lives of rural, Black women. The author weaves in her own story as she details the day-to-day struggles, negotiations and realities of living in a small town while being Black, poor, and female. This review attempts to provide praise for Boylorn’s work, while also offering critiques and further considerations.
