The potent quote that Sadiqua Johnson has included at the beginning of her book "The Yellow Wife" underscores her story perfectly - it hovered in my mind throughout the unfolding of events. To me, it succinctly encapsulated the thread of her novel, and resounded constantly and powerfully as I read.
The narrative is commanding, intense and tragic. It's difficult to read about the nitty gritty of man's inhumanity to man, but shockingly, is a necessary evil in order to KNOW and feel what is right, lest we forget and become blasé. I felt pretty raw after reading it, but highly recommend it for its grounding and humbling experience.
