How Fire Runs by Charles Dodd White - Guest Blogger Book Review

A chilling, timely reminder of the moral and human costs of racial hatred.

What happens when a delusional white supremacist and his army of followers decide to create a racially pure “Little Europe” within a rural Tennessee community? As the town’s residents grapple with their new reality, minor skirmishes escalate and dirty politics, scandals, and a cataclysmic chain of violence follows. In this uncanny reflection of our time, award-winning novelist Charles Dodd White asks whether Americans can save themselves from their worst impulses and considers the consequences when this salvation comes too late.

Jennifer's Review
How Fire Runs is a good book. 
It's mostly about politics and politicians, and it's a race of white against black after a commissioner steps down. A white man and a black man fight over the seat, and the whole town votes for who they want.
Who wins? What does the loser do? You won't believe it.
