BY THE LIGHT OF EMBERS by Shaylin Gandhi / Historical Fiction / Releasing May 9, 2019 by Briar Rose Publishing
Lucia tested the limits, challenged the norms without fear. As a white woman from a good family the world was hers.
Nicholas was a poet. They shared literature and so much more. He was a black man in 1954 Louisiana.
When a minor misunderstanding resulted in the lynching of a black man, Lucia began to understand just how far apart their worlds were and the danger that resided there.
Beautifully written about the passion and the pain of a time when lives were defiined by the color of their skin. Excellent read.
Thank you NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
