In If You Come Softly, Jeremiah and Ellie are seen by society to be on opposite poles, however through clashing events, their worlds collide. Ellie, a Jewish American girl is learning of Jeremiah’s African American culture. During that time, they are faced with backlash from others that continuously attempt to separate them. Despite this, the pair manages to fall in love and become an interracial couple. Across many obstacles, the pair still believes that they fit perfectly in each other’s worlds.

This book is a quick read and very fast paced. I would recommend this book to basically anyone, because it isn’t very long. I really liked how the book deals with many issues in our society and how it is written to show two perspectives. I found this book to be very thought provoking and deep.
