Riveted_Reader_Melissa @rubyslippersreads That‘s the problem I have with my girls now, they are all rescues that came at different times, and the newest always needed a lot of care because of that, so the older always got super jealous. 1y

Quoting from the blurb on the back because I couldn‘t word it better:

“One cannot finish Kindred without feeling changed. It is a shattering work of art with much to say about love, hate, slavery, and racial dilemmas, then and now.”
