A Delicate Affair is the first story in a 12-book series, Decades: An African-American Romance Series, and it got things started with a bang. Set in the 1900s, author Lindsay Evans told a beautiful love story, against the historical background of lynchings in the South (from which Golden escapes being a casualty himself), and the efforts of Frederick Douglass and other northern Blacks to affect change in the fight for rights for Blacks. I have eagerly anticipated this series, and this initial book was well worth the wait. Kudos to the author in a dual well-done job. Her book could easily stand alone, but does a very credible job of setting the tone for the series. I can't wait for next month's book, which is set in the following decade.
The atmosphere, backdrop, and music steeped me in the period covered. Careful attention to detail gave the story an authentic feel. The push and pull between the two lovers made me emotional at times, so too the reality of what black people faced in the 1900s.
Good storytelling, memorable characters, and insight into life ‘way back when’, make A Delicate Affair an entertaining read.
I am so looking forward to the next book from the Decades series.
Golden and Leonie are from two very different worlds. Golden, poor and from the South and Leonie is privileged and on her way to Radcliffe College which is expected of her. She wants to be free to do what she wants and Golden is the catalyst to make that happen.
