I liked this book but didn‘t love it. It‘s told from alternating perspectives of four different narrators. 2 of the narrators are enslaved women, one is a free black woman living during the time of slavery and one is a woman living in present day America. All four are able to manipulate material matter. All four use this power to help others. My only criticism is that I didn‘t feel like I got to know any of them well and the ending felt unfinished

I took a break from #nfNov to read this ARC I won from BookishFirst. I was not disappointed—historical fiction with a splash of magical realism, this book is beautifully written.

Powerful, stunning, memorable, one of my favorites this year. It's historical, fantasy, magical, with a bit of paranormal. It touched my soul, took my mind into new heights of imagination, feelings untouched opened, a wound resurfaced, then healed. The main characters have a dedicated chapter, their family history interwoven into different time periods. A must read. #MrBook1inaMillion #24B4Monday

lele1432 This sounds so good! I just read a more humorous, YA book featuring some historical Haiti-American complexity. Adding this one! 2mo

I won this ARC in a BookishFirst raffle. The first impression sucked me in, so when the book arrived today, I dived right in, picking up where the first impression left off.

I fully recommend BookishFirst. I‘ve only been on there a few months, but have won 3 ARCs & I don‘t enter every raffle. Plus, I‘ve also earned a free book.
