I know it’s not literature, but I loved this book: Lily White by Susan Isaacs. The book employs a great technique, switching chapter by chapter from first to third person, from the present to the past. It shows the main character’s life from her point of view, and a narrator provides history and background on her life. Transposes a basic courtroom, crime drama with a social and class study…really great reading was had here. Recommend it.
