The Water Dancer By Ta-Nehisi Coates
A boldly imagined work of magic and adventure from the National Book Award-winning author of Between the World and Me.
Young Hiram Walker was born into bondage—and lost his mother and all memory of her when he was a child—but he is also gifted with a mysterious power. Hiram almost drowns when he crashes a carriage into a river, but is saved from the depths by a force he doesn’t understand, a blue light that lifts him up and lands him a mile away. This strange brush with death forces a new urgency on Hiram’s private rebellion. Spurred on by his improvised plantation family, Thena, his chosen mother, a woman of few words and many secrets, and Sophia, a young woman fighting her own war even as she and Hiram fall in love, he becomes determined to escape the only home he’s ever known.
So begins an unexpected journey into the covert war on slavery that takes Hiram from the corrupt grandeur of Virginia’s proud plantations to desperate guerrilla cells in the wilderness, from the coffin of the deep South to dangerously utopic movements in the North.
World That We Knew
Alice Hoffman is a master storyteller and her new novel does not disappoint. Filled with just the right amount of magical realism and Jewish Mysticism, this all too real tale of the Holocaust enchanted me from the first chapter. I loved that she explored some of the Resistance fighting that was happening in France during the occupation as well as her focus on the kindness of those who hid and helped the persecuted. Alice Hoffman has done it again! -Danica (owner Townie Books)
