REVIEW: When the Reckoning Comes

Whew, this one will blow your mind in several ways. When Mira is invited to her childhood best friend’s wedding she goes begrudgingly. The wedding is being held on a former plantation, a place that holds intense memories for Mira, a Black woman and a child who grew up in the shadow of the old dilapidated place. She and her childhood friends had an incident there as children and Mira can not believe Celine, who is white, would chose this locale for her wedding. When Mira and Celine are reunited with Jesse, they are forced to face their past and the past of the plantation.

The way this story unfolds is stunning and heart pounding. It’s 12 Years a Slave meets Get Out. History and horror. Haunting echoes of the past and chilling violence in the present. This book will definitely shake your views on race relations and leave you terrified about both the past and the present. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Are you this anti-social? 🤣 Will you go to a restaurant by yourself and read?
