Obie takes us into Addis' world and provides perspectives from most of those around her. You can smell the herbs in the garden. You can hear the cannons. You can feel the wetness of the water. You're given accounts of how everyone felt during this time from the oji (slave) who's just trying to stay alive to the non-color right hand of the President who just wants to be his brother, to "free" ojis who thought their village could protect them.
Obie doesn't shy away from the harshness of Addis' world. There is pain and grief and blood. There is also the love and support and passion that rounds out the humanity of everyone in this story.
