Book Review of Kindred (Black Women Writers Series)

Kindred (Black Women Writers Series)
ptlonestar avatar reviewed on

As a true romance junkie, I do not frequently venture outside the genre. In the case of Kindred, I am so glad that I decided to stray from my comfort zone. This book is "beautifully tragic." I was sucked in and read it all in one marathon sitting. As I am a slow reader, it was a terribly long session. But, I could not put it down. There just never seemed a good point to stop reading. Every page left me wanting to know what came next.
I loved that the characters were neither good nor bad. They were a believeable mix of loveable, despicable, sympathetic, and pitiful. Foremost, I identified with Dana. There were so many instances when I felt that she made the right decision (the one I would have made) only to suffer the consequences.
Overall, it was a good blend of time travel and historical fiction.
