Lynnette R. Freeman offers a driven narration of Lockhart’s latest, the story of Lottie Rebecca Lee, a Black daughter-spirit born to heal her family’s generational trauma. Lottie’s story grows out of the violence that haunted her ancestors—from her enslaved great-great-great- grandmother to her viciously abusive great-grandfather and her grandfather. In an expressive sorrowful voice, Freeman communicates the fear of living in precarious environments, coupled with the weight of not seeing a path forward. Her depiction of Lottie Rebecca, a girl who embodies her ancestors’ rage, hope, and sorrow, is layered, making room for a confused, querulous girl alongside her weary but determined older self. Though not for the faint of heart, this unrelenting story of trauma and redemption will resonate with listeners. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2023]
