SEDAHLIA is a historical pulsing with raw emotion and sensuality…I promise you will be astonished by Rachel, feel her experiences and those of her family…as if you were there. Four wonderful stars.
Sedahlia is about different families living on a ranch, hence the name of the book. The setting is post-civil war. Although the war is over, skin color and differences are still a factor. The families work together, experience losses and love. Temper, thievery, deception, and love all come into play. This is a mixture of white/black, female/male, ranch, and city. The book, although lengthy, will keep your attention
As for the characters, Jesse was a favorite. Born a slave; taken by the master’s son, fighting and falling from blow after blow bestowed upon her, but always getting back up. Jesse is far from perfect, and that made me like her even more. The author showed her strength and her weaknesses. Her love and dedication to the people around her, did she make bad choices/decisions? Of course, she did that made her more human to the reader.
If one can be patient, this historical read is a good read. ‘It can get long in certain areas,’ however, it’s worth a view.
The trials faced by the characters in this book was heartbreaking and the scary part is these types of activities probably actually took place to someone simply because of the color of their skin.
I kept waiting for things to get better for the characters in this book and honestly it looked like it might not ever get better. But there is hope in the end.
Now, as much as I loved this book I do need to caution readers, there is a lot of intimate moments in this book both pre-marital and marital. It isn’t overly graphic but it will paint a very vivid picture of what is going on and it happens several times. If things are easily awoken in you this might be a book to avoid. But if that doesn’t bother you and won’t lead you down a path you shouldn’t go then you should be fine.
Also, there isn’t an overflow spiritual stuff going on. I wish there was a bit more but there are some characters that have faith and try to bring that into other characters lives who are seeking and lost.
For me this book was amazing and I loved being brought into the lives of these characters.
