I have way more notes on this than I'll actually post here. I loved parts of this story, some parts were pretty contrived and preachy. Do I even want to give a review?

There's definitely a difference between the modern story that is told and the story within the story. The story of Iona and Joe is beautiful and heartbreaking. Didn't care so much for the modern story... but the whole thing was just super fast-paced to really enjoy much of anything. I wonder if this was done on purpose --- either it's a beginner author or it's meant to read like a folk tale that could easily be passed orally. And that's fine---folk tales and oral stories are not usually known for their character development.

While the story was clearly written to encourage? stir up? the Black community, the truth is that most of the sentiments in this book are applicable to humanity in general. I think understanding that concept will go a long way in having the kind of society that truly shows love to one another.
