Following her National Book Award–nominated debut novel, A Kind of Freedom, Margaret Wilkerson Sexton returns with this equally elegant and historically inspired story of survivors and healers, of black women and their black sons, set in the American South.

In 1925, Josephine is the proud owner of a thriving farm. As a child, she channeled otherworldly power to free herself from slavery. Now, her new neighbor, a white woman named Charlotte, seeks her company, and an uneasy friendship grows between them. But Charlotte has also sought solace in the Ku Klux Klan, a relationship that jeopardizes Josephine’s family.

Nearly one hundred years later, Josephine’s descendant, Ava, is a single mother who has just lost her job. She moves in with her white grandmother Martha, a wealthy but lonely woman who pays her grandchild to be her companion. But Martha’s behavior soon becomes erratic, then even threatening, and Ava must escape before her story and Josephine’s converge.

The Revisioners explores the depths of women’s relationships―powerful women and marginalized women, healers and survivors. It is a novel about the bonds between a mother and a child, and the dangers that upend those bonds. At its core, The Revisioners ponders generational legacies, the endurance of hope, and the undying promise of freedom.

so, I think I just found another author that I like. Before this book, I read Margaret other book "My Kind of Freedom". I was never fond of authors who go back and forth between time era's but Mrs. Sexton changed my mind. They way she does it is effortlessly. During reading "The Revisioners", I kept thinking of the previous book. Maybe I should read another author between so I won't get the characters mixed up, because I'm sure these 2 books could have been one. This one put me in the mindframe of the imitation of life and colorism. hmmmm now what's next.....#Book43of2020 #bookworm
