I had never heard about these prayer protests at the segregation of churches in the South. For this reason, I found the subject matter interesting. However the style of the book is detailed and factual, reciting events in multiple church congregations and jumping around a lot. For this reason I struggled to identify with the people in the book. I wanted more detail on individuals, why they decided to protest and how they felt. What we got instead was the dry history "two black women...." and lots of names, places and dates.
The narrator did a very good job. His voice and tone I felt were ideally suited to this serious non-fiction book.
This book is worth a listen for the history and educational value, but I do feel if the author had focussed on one or two protesters it would have given greater insight into the period and what made people tick.
