Really enjoyed this story! This definitely didn’t read like a debut novel....Ms. Licorish penned this like a seasoned author. I’ll be on the lookout for more books from her for sure!

A great read

I was hooked to this book as soon as I started reading it. If a book has history, time-travel, and a great storyline, then you have my attention. I wish I had written this book as it is greatly put together with some amazing characters and it means more to me when the characters are based around or named after actual real life people. This twist at the end really pulls the book together and gives it an ending well worth waiting for. Highly recommend.

I have a few Facebook friends who have written books and I have supported them. Some of them were bad, some were good, but this time, I have a friend who has written something GREAT! The story sucked me in and I had no choice but to continue to turn the pages. Great characters, great writing, great book. You did your thing with this one, Joyce. Can’t wait for the movie and to read more work from you.

Loved this book!

This book gives an enlightening perspective of racism, ignorance, forgiveness, white privilege story that takes you back in time. Mostly this book reminds all people of any color, gender or status the importance of love.

Great read

This was the first book I have read by this author, but it won't be the last. Couldn't wait to finish it. Very surprising ending.

Important themes and ideas

It was a good story and the idea was brilliant, but the execution was just a bit lacking. I had a hard time with the style of the story. The way it was told made it difficult for me to really get into. It would be a great play.

Time travel has always gotten me interested! It was such a good read, and I loved it! Knowing that there are more books after this one I am very excited to read more! The main character goes on such an empowering journey that it had me interested and I loved the journey all until the end! Reminded me of outlander on how the main character came from one century, and in this case, traveled back like three centuries! It had me at the edge of my seat! How when she went back in time how she saw how h ...more

I love to read and this book checks all the boxes for me. Struggles, triumph, love... The tragic undercurrent of racism plaguing our country is artfully woven into the fabric of this novel. With a unique sci-fi twist, and a startling finale, this book will keep you up past your usual bedtime. The echoes of the characters will stay with you long after you read the last page.

A Great Debut

I was taken in by the synopsis of this book. It was intriguing as I had not seen too many time travel historical fiction dealing with this subject matter. It’s hard to say if this was fiction, or a bit of realism with fiction thrown in. How did most slaves live? Were they
all treated horribly or were some better off than others. The author penned an interesting narrative, bringing you into the situation of the day.
