Kindred - Read it!

Great book! I don't know why I never heard of it before, but since I'm doing my genealogy, a friend recommended it. Since I'm working in the past myself, this was very apropos. Couldn't put it down!

Blast from the past

I read this book when I was a teen. And decided that it had to be part of my personal library, now, many years later.

A must read

We chose this book for The Inner Circle Book Club selection for April and I am already finished! I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. It was a great story about forgiveness and overcoming that compels you because of the wit and realness in the story telling. I cannot wait to read more books by Carleen Brice.
