I'm so envious of everyone who hasn't read Arlene Walker's forthcoming novel yet. I wish I could go back and meet her characters all over again. I haven't stopped thinking about their stories yet. Seeds of Deception is easily one of my favorite reads this year.

While historical fiction isn’t it a genre I read often, I found myself drawn into the pages of Seeds of Deception. The characters range the spectrum from good-hearted to callous and you’ll definitely find a villain you’ll love to hate. The story’s historical aspect is one you’ve probably never heard before, which makes Seeds of Deception educational as well as entertaining. The author is also a gifted writer who paints the pages with creative descriptions. I enjoyed it and I’m sure you will too!

Pretty quick page-turner, but goes into deep emotional territory. Super descriptive and vivid. Was the best book that my book club has selected in quite awhile.

Walker has created a delicious blend of historical fact and fiction. She weaves her tale of a family dealing with the consequences of secrets in the setting of post-Civil War slave emancipation. This story is also part of the bigger, but mostly untold story of the relationship of Freedmen and the Cherokee tribe. It's a compelling, well written story and an enlightening window into a world of which few people are aware.

I loved the strength and resiliency of the main character, Sput Louie. And I

It was kind of an interesting story, I just don't think it was the right story for my personal taste, but judge for yourself

I received a copy of this book through netgalley for an honest review.
