RED SKY OVER AMERICA
Red Sky Over America(Desert Breeze, February 2018)
In 1857, America, the daughter of a slave owner, is an abolitionist and a student at Oberlin College, a school known for its radical ideas. When America goes home to Kentucky during school break to confront her father about freeing his slaves, America’s classmate, William, tags along to preach abolition to churches that condone slavery. Soon, though, America and William find themselves in the center of the approaching storm sweeping the nation. Will they make it back to Ohio . . . or even live through the struggle?
Red Sky over America is a good read. I enjoyed Tamera Lynn Kraft’s storytelling. She did an excellent job vividly describing the past and settings. I felt like I had been transported back in time and being part of America’s world. I enjoyed her and admired her strength and determination in wanting to make a change.
I give Red Sky over America 4 1/2 stars. This is my first intro to this author’s writing and it most definitely will not be the last.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
