Amazing. A woman that can time travel between the present and her enslaved relatives' time and comes to realize that she has to stop protecting her relatives in order to come into existence. It sounds boring, but Octavia Butler never is. I love how she uses science fiction to explore racial politics. We lost a good one when Ms. Butler died...
