Read in April, 2012 — I own a copy

Gathering of Waters is a mystical, eerie, captivating fictional story of Emmett Till, his famous murder in 1955, and the characters of Money, Mississippi, told by the soul of Money. The story flows wonderfully, I was captivated without stumble until the final few chapters, when Tass comes back to Money and things change for her. I wasn’t sure at first that I liked it, but it soon fit.
This is an edgy book also in that it brings back so well the hatred, but also the beauty, from that time in our history. Bernice McFadden writes masterfully, reminding me of Toni Morrison’s writing. I received this through Librarything.com giveaways, and I loved this book! This would make a great book club read
