Pub Day REVIEW: Night Wherever We Go

It’s the late 1850s in Texas on a plantation and the family is struggling financially. They decide to bring in a breeding male negro to impregnate their female slaves, more babies means more income long term. The women are understandably angry and will do anything to thwart these efforts.

This was another one of those books where I spent the entire time heart-aching and devastated by the realities of our history in America. The author perfectly demonstrates how the slave owners treated these

 rich, complex humans as nothing more than stock animals simply because of their color. The focus here is on the women as not only workers in the field but as wet nurses for the master’s children at the detriment to their own, the forced breeding with strange traveling men and then being ripped from their children. I had so many emotions reading this one, my heartbreak and anger were overwhelming. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I did this one on audio and enjoyed the narrator.

Thanks to Harper Audio for gifted access via Netgalley. All opinions above are my own.
