Editorial Reviews


2016 Independent Publisher Book Awards Gold Medal for Multicultural Fiction 

Foreword Reviews 2015 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award Finalist

"A five-star literary work..." --San Francisco Book Review
"The Truth About Awiti engages and rivets the reader into its well-toldstory. But more so, and in the tradition of Octavia Butler (Parable of theSower; Kindred), Patrick employs speculative fiction to offer answers,redemption, restitution, and even a good measure of revenge." -- QBR The Black Book Review
CP Patrick supplies thereader with a comprehensive understanding of slavery, the misuse of power, andthe effects of insatiable greed... Patrick interweaves historical facts with the spiritualaspects in a most intriguing way. This book is simply compelling - you willnever forget it. -- Deborah Lloyd for Readers' Favorite

From the Author

"I try to be fair to my characters. With my research and their experiences. I owe it to them to be as accurate as possible when writing historical fiction. The character is fiction but the history - it's real." - CP Patrick

What readers are saying...

"CP Patrick's The Truth About Awiti grips and wraps itself around the reader from beginning to end. Patrick intertwines the real dastardly use of slavery with the perceived spiritual forces and the supernatural in the form of horrific storms and hurricanes which were called upon to exact vengeance upon the perpetrators of the institution of slavery. This debut novel provides many literary dimensions for group discussions as well as individual reflection. The Truth About Awiti is worthy of comparison to such writers as, Tananarive Due and Octavia Butler."

"If you're looking for a beautiful marriage of supernatural and slave fiction this is the book to choose." 

"The Truth About Awiti represents a new way of discussing the African diaspora and the lasting impact it has had on Black people around the world and our society as a whole."

"It's been a long time since I've read a book so captivating. The Truth About Awiti is a thoroughly engrossing, simply riveting book..." 

"A book steeped in historical horror and relevance, this is definitely a debut you do not want to miss." 

"This is one of the most enjoyable historical fiction books I have ever read. CP Patrick's vivid imagery and emotive storytelling kept me engaged throughout the book."

"This book is amazing, and by far one of the best books I've ever read. It showed me a different perspective on life before, during, and after slavery, and the heavy incorporation of historical elements makes the text all that much more real. CP Patrick's prose and the connections that she leaves the reader to draw keep the pages turning and the wheels spinning in total submersion of slave and post-slavery culture."

"I read The Truth About Awiti as part of a class, and it inspired some great discussions and a lot of thought about slavery and its legacy. I would recommend this book to anyone, but particularly to English and History teachers looking for a way to engage their students with the past."

"Such a great book. It's been a while since I've had trouble putting a book down like this one. Such vivid imagery, and a wonderfully multi-faceted account of the way slavery continues to affect the American people. Thank you CP Patrick!!!"
