This is an excellent story of post-slavery life and its effect on African-American and White Americans of many nationalities. It showed how the black family has evolved with psychosis from systemic and institutional racism especially its effect on the black male. The strength of the black family is also portrayed. Reading this story has brought me to the conclusion that no one has the right to judge a people who has endured what the African-American people has endured and still "We Rise".

Very moving and well written. I came across it when mentioned in another book I was reading. I am so happy I followed through and read it. It is a story that will touch the readers life in an enduring way. Must read!

Though I’ve read many books and seen many movies set in the pre and post Civil War years, this story was particularly profound and real. The dialogue, the use of snippets of spirituals, and the character development made this book come alive. I felt I was with Vyry in each tragedy and heartbreak. She gave me strength and hope as she conquered hate with love.

Excellent historical novel. Heart felt characters and mazing storyline. Author did a great job using symbolic references to the bible related to events and persons in the book. Great context and vivid details.
