Alfre Woodard narrates this novel of a nation in transition. The story is told through the experiences of Easter, a black woman from the South who goes to Harlem for a better life and strives to become a writer at the birth of the Harlem Renaissance. Woodard offers a nuanced narration that makes Easter’s experiences and emotions real and unforgettable. Her intensity as Easter expresses the vivid and rich life Easter enjoys until she’s caught up in a scandal that makes her world contract. Woodard is conversational at times, reporting events as they occur and engaging in Easter’s perspective of the historical events that wend their way through her life’s story.
