On her 26th birthday, Dana and her husband are moving into their apartment when she starts to feel dizzy. She falls to her knees, nauseous. Then the world falls away. She finds herself at the edge of a green wood by a vast river. A child is screaming. Wading into the water, she pulls him to safety, only to find herself face to face with a very old looking rifle, in the hands of the boy's father. She's terrified. The next thing she knows she's back in her apartment, soaking wet. It's the most terrifying experience of her life ...until it happens again. The longer Dana spends in 19th century Maryland - a very dangerous place for a black woman - the more aware she is that her life might be over before it's even begun.

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.
