"A searing and tender novel about a young Black journalist's search for answers in the unsolved murder of her great-grandfather in segregated Birmingham, Alabama, decades ago-inspired by the author's own family history Birmingham, 1929: Robert Lee Harrington, a master carpenter, has just moved to Alabama to pursue a job opportunity, bringing along his pregnant wife and young daughter. Birmingham is in its heyday, known as the "Magic City" for its booming steel industry, and while Robert and his family find much to enjoy in the city's busy markets and vibrant nightlife, it's also a stronghold for the Klan. And with his beautiful, light-skinned wife and snazzy car, Robert begins to worry that he might be drawing the wrong kind of attention. 2019: Meghan McKenzie, the youngest reporter at the Detroit Free Press, has grown up hearing family lore about her great-grandfather's murder-but no one knows the full story of what really happened back then, and his body was never found. Determined to find answers to her family's long-buried tragedy and spurred by the urgency of the Black Lives Matter movement, Meghan travels to Birmingham. But as her investigation begins to uncover dark secrets that spider across both the city and time, her life may be in danger. Inspired by true events, Time's Undoing is both a passionate tale of one woman's quest for the truth behind the racially motivated trauma that has haunted her family for generations and, as newfound friends and supporters in Birmingham rally around Meghan's search, the uplifting story of a community coming together to fight for change"--.… (mere)

Meghan McKenzie is a young journalist for the Detroit Free Press primarily covering Black Lives Matter in 2019. The novel is narrated by two people, Meghan (2019) and Robert Lee Harrington (1929). In 1929 in Birmingham, Alabama, her great-grandfather Robert Lee Harrington, an exceptional carpenter, was killed at the age of 28. No one knows where or if he was buried or why he was killed. He was married to Anna Kate, a light-skinned woman, had one child Mae, and another on the way. He drove a Franklin Victoria, a flashy car, dressed very well, and had a short temper. Meghan travels to Birmingham to research police violence against Blacks traced back to the conditions in 1929 and ultimately to find out what happened to her great-grandfather. She finds allies in a goth-girl librarian named Kristen Gleason; a local Black Lives Matter leader, Monique Hendricks; and the mayor's office liaison to BLM, the handsome and charming Darius Curren. She first finds the murder of a corrupt police officer, Simenon, around the time of her great-grandfather's death. Her allies introduce her to people who had some connection to her great-grandfather.

Beautifully written book about a young woman reporter determined to find the truth about her family.
Told in 2 timelines, 1929 and 2019.
In 1929, a master carpenter, Robert, and his wife, along with their daughter, moved to AL from FL. Sadly, Robert is targeted by the police and the Klan, and tragedy happens.
In 2019, Meghan, a journalist, wants to research about her great-grandfather (Robert) and his murder. She heads to Birmingham to write a story, and to research the murder. She stumbles upon help in unlikely sources, and also rips off the bandage hiding some tragic history.
I loved this book, it kept me interested and engaged, and I enjoyed Meghan's drive for the truth. ( )
