Remembrance...it’s a rumor, a whisper passed in the fields and veiled behind sheets of laundry. A hidden stop on the underground road to freedom, a safe haven protected by more than secrecy...if you can make it there.

Ohio, present day. An elderly woman who is more than she seems warns against rising racism as a young woman grapples with her life.

Haiti, 1791, on the brink of revolution. When the slave Abigail is forced from her children to take her mistress to safety, she discovers New Orleans has its own powers.

1857 New Orleans - a city of unrest: Following tragedy, house girl Margot is sold just before her 18th birthday and her promised freedom. Desperate, she escapes and chases a whisper.... Remembrance.

remembrance

I was very disappointed with a book that had so much potential to be great. Especially the ending, which left me seriously wondering and sad.
Narration was very good!

Abrupt ending

This book did not close with any finality. Also, caught an error where the author made a reference to West Virginia which did not even exist at the time...
Didn’t really understand how or why the characters weaved together.
