Kaia Alderson recommends
The American Queen (2024)
Vanessa Miller
"Vanessa Miller's page-turner The American Queen takes readers on a winding journey through the horrors and triumphs of the post--Civil War / Reconstruction era to show how a broken formerly enslaved woman transforms into an actual queen over her people. Louella Bobo Montgomery emerges from a Mississippi plantation with a vision of a 'happy land' where her people will live together in peace and with dignity. Turning that vision into a reality, however, tests the very foundations of her faith. The American Queen is a moving, heartwarming story that reminds us that all things are possible with faith, hope, love, and forgiveness."
All You Have to Do Is Call (2023)
Kerri Maher
"A gripping novel that illustrates how ordinary people like mothers, housewives, and students can - and have - put their necks on the line for the greater good. This novel comes at the right time to remind us of the power we have on the individual level to make change, sometimes with our own bare hands."
A Right Worthy Woman (2023)
Ruth P Watson
"Watson has given us an extraordinary journey of a determined woman who, against the odds, reminds her community what can be accomplished when united around a common vision."
