Power Thriumphs with Time

by Kiamiko on Sep 1, 2008

A complete stranger recommend that i read this book and forever I will be in debt to him. How to describe a book of such richness. First anyone with a passion for race, time, identity or even Einstein's Theory of Relativity, should pick up this book. Mr Powers has the gift of composing words that make a lasting sounds in our minds. The song, the melody, or the story, if you like, plays something like this - A German physicist meets a black singer at the Marian Anderson concert in Washington DC in 1941, they fall in love, marry and have children. Caught in a time when society is too helpless and inept to accept their relationship or their children the couple decides to create their own customs based on their love of music. What follows is a continuous, unified, and evocative composition of words, with all the melody, harmony, rhythm, one needs. This is a story not to be missed!
