KindredKindred by Octavia E. Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dana Franklin is a black woman in America in the seventies. She finds herself living her life with her husband who is white, but then she is catapulted back to antebellum south. The story goes back and gives a historic look at the way slaves were treated. Dana also ends up discovering some things about her ancestry that surprise her. Life during that time and how Dana is living through her current circumstances. The story is hard at times to read, not because it is not written well but because its uncomfortable and horrific to envision.

I listened to this one on audiobook and it took a little bit to figure out what was going on. I would suggest that if listening to focus on the narration for the first few chapters to understand what is going on, I ended up having to go back because I was multitasking. My sister and niece both loved this book and said reading it was fantastic. Well worth checking out.
