From the Author
"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!!!"
