Review: BY THE LIGHT OF EMBERS by Shaylin Gandhi

41dpm7noZrL._SY346_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.
