Author Kaitlyn Greenidge and narrator Channie Waites combine forces in this historical novel to create an immersive tale woven of many threads, including mothers and daughters, nineteenth-century Black life, magic, medicine, and finding one's true path. Greenidge, who won the Whiting Award for her first novel, WE LOVE YOU, CHARLIE FREEMAN, was inspired by the life of the third African-American woman to earn a medical degree in America. What would it be like to be the daughter of such a pioneering woman? Thus, she conjured Libertie. Conjuring is also what Waites does in a performance that brims with rhythm and swagger. Reading with the cadence of an oral storyteller, she invokes character with accent and intonation, peopling listener's ears while captivating them. A.C.S.
