This book is marinated with emotion. People who feel deeply, a wide range of emotions across many generations. They are deep feelers. Such people are wired to experience the world first and foremost through their emotions and every one in this book does. Something that the world is convinced black women do not posses. There's both personal and generational growth, almost a leap in Audre from the other women. Shane was a pleasure to read. His awareness, his persistence and resolve, his fear, his acceptance. I was glad he finally realised that his salvation and healing was his tether, John-vee-ev. I loved this book because I understand these characters. I recognise the aloofness in Lizette, the sheer determination in Eve to escape her ancestral destiny that Genevieve would become but I also share the significance of Shane for her life.
This book touched me in so many ways. I started off loving the beautifully written lives of these people and the rich culture they live but ended up looking through their lives a a lens for mine. This book evokes feelings and that is the best kind there is. If you have faced a fork in the road that MADE you stand still, review and change your life (which is almost anyone), you will love this. No matter how it turned out for you. My favourite piece in the book is the idea of renting out James Baldwin's former home. Imagine doing this for the likes of Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Alice Walker.....I'd be made.
Loved it from the first page! I actually had to stop, take a photo of the first page to send to my friends, and then carry on reading. I easily finished the book in a couple of days as I struggled so much to put it down.
Warm, funny, romantic, and well-written. Touches on conversations about diversity in publishing that are also really interesting.
Such a great book!! Loved the characters & just immersing myself in a space occupied by brilliant black women. Especially loved that Eva & Shane are so not perfect and have pretty dark demons to overcome. Just loved this!!!
