As they passed, they greeted one another, occasionally gathering in brief clusters. A cold day, Sam answered. Preacher Nelson rubbed his hands over his arms, sometimes clapping hands, to stay warm. Yes, but we’re still alive. One more day in our right minds. Is there a word today, preacher?. Yellow Nelson laughed softly. Oh, there’s always a word from the Lord, Prophet Nat!.

Another good book by Sharon Ewell Foster. This is the 2nd book of Sharon Foster I have read. She puts some truth into her novels and so much research that makes her novel's so worth reading.

Nat gave his life in order to show what justice really means!! And he did it! He did it, indeed!

I loved this book. This did not feel like fiction at all. It felt as if the writer was there. I believe that Sharon Ewell Foster had some type of out-of-body experience when she wrote this. I feel privileged to have read this.

See above review of The Witnesses.

Exactly the book my husband was looking for.
He is currently reading part one and two, both of which were purchased on Amazon.

I think it would have been better to combine the info in this book with the Part 1. There was a lot of repetition and I found myself skimming through whole sections of theology that seemed to be stated and restated.

Since I enjoyed the first part of historical fiction of Nat Turner life, now I want to dab into part 2 of the series. I didn't learn about this man until I went to college and taken Africology and History courses, also after reading Richard Wright literature piqued my curiosity too.

I loved how the author shared Nat's love and obsession with Cherry; however, he believed that he would be wise and never marry to accomplish his revolt. But those he cared for, he lost, for Elizabeth wanted to show who was really in charge (and how a slave had to stay in his place) because of her jealousy caused the separation of the family that Nat loved so much: mother, son, and wife. How he tried to balance his Ethiopian beliefs that was shared and taught by his mother, and his Christian beliefs that was shared by his father who was a minister and also his slaveholder, his oppressor and mother's rapist. Sadly this was the norm during enslavement. She captures the reader, and entices my impulses while piquing my curiosity from what I know on this time period in history Yet she writes a dynamic, compelling, heart-wrenching and romance even in perilous times in the 1800s.

I love Sharon Ewell Foster's writing style from previous literature, and since I love history, now in fiction form draws me in even more!

There are numerous passages I've shared on Facebook page, so dreadful, meaningful, and to some may be cynicism but overall I took to heart. Slavery, some would argue as mentioned in the book, about believing in their "white" gods since they forced such brutality on those from Africa, and raped the women, bore children as a form of breeding and sell like cattle, and even more what was enriching was how Nat Turner embraced his roots, religion, from both nations: America and Africa. Yet, the slave captors left a great debt of an evil inheritance and still paying for our forefathers' wrongs--and aftermath of slavery even today. Poisoned for generations then, and the unborn (future children to be born). This great nations was built on the backs of slaves.

*I also loved the short chapters, in depth scenery as well as character emotional side, only downfall at times for me was the length. I kept saying, more pages to read...even though I love to read books no matter of page count...but probably when I get to the end...say, is that it?! I also had to take pause breaks to digest all that was shared in the novel as a whole.

Adrienna Turner, The Day Begins with Christ
I loved this book. It is a novel and thus fiction. Yet it reveals a truth about Nat Turner and about the institution of slavery in America as it really was--a history that most Americans have chosen to ignore.For me, Foster's writing is beautifully descriptive, moving, and easy to understand. She breaks up the stereotypes we all hold about slavery.
