One of the best books I have read. Ever. ( )

The Tulsa race massacre was horrifying and this novel explores a fictionalized version of those events. It flashes back and forth from the 1921 timeline to the present day. The story is good, but the writing is filled with clichés and hard to swallow at times. The modern-day plot was much less compelling and the characters were very one-dimensional. Still worth reading, but probably better for a younger audience. ( )

Loved how both voices were distinct, but the plot melded together seamlessly. Beautifully written work about an ugly event in US History-with plenty of commentary on the state of affairs in the here and now. ( )

This book describes the 1920's race riot in Tulsa, Ok. The book flips back and forth between a native american boy of the time period, and a young black woman in contemporary times (whose family owns the house involved in the incidents of the 1920's. Good book for book club discussion. ( )

When construction contractors discover the unthinkable under the floor of her family's guesthouse, Rowan and her best friend James decide themselves to investigate, independently of the police, how the nearly 100-year-old skeleton with a crushed skull came to be buried on her family's property. As clues lead them into the past, Rowan and James come face-to-face with a painful and shameful event in Tulsa's history. The story is told via parallel timelines: through Rowan's eyes we view the present, but the events of the past are told through the lens of Will Tillman, a white teenager directly involved in the violence of 1921.

When this book percolated to the top of my to-read list, I have to admit that I didn't remember why I'd added it back in 2017, but I became eager to dig in when I realized that it centers around the Tulsa race massacre because I had not too long ago listened to a SYMIHC podcast about that very incident. The subject matter is presented with both frankness and sensitivity, and there are a number of moments for the contemporary reader to reflect on what they might have done when faced with similar circumstances. Recommended, particularly in conjunction with education in the Civil Rights Movement and the Jim Crow era. ( )
