A bold novel about a magical gift, a devastating loss, and an underground war of freedom!

I have been looking for more books to read after the New Year, and I am really interested in how The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coate sounds. It establishes itself as a potent book about America's most disgraceful sin. It is a an Oprah's Book Club pick, a #1 New York Times Bestseller, and has been named one of Paste's Best Novels of the Decade.

As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for The Water Dancer is:

"Young Hiram Walker was born into bondage. When his mother was sold away, Hiram was robbed of all memory of her—but was gifted with a mysterious power. Years later, when Hiram almost drowns in a river, that same power saves his life. This brush with death births an urgency in Hiram and a daring scheme: to escape from the only home he’s ever known.

So begins an unexpected journey that takes Hiram from the corrupt grandeur of Virginia’s proud plantations to desperate guerrilla cells in the wilderness, from the coffin of the Deep South to dangerously idealistic movements in the North. Even as he’s enlisted in the underground war between slavers and the enslaved, Hiram’s resolve to rescue the family he left behind endures.

This is the dramatic story of an atrocity inflicted on generations of women, men, and children—the violent and capricious separation of families—and the war they waged to simply make lives with the people they loved. Written by one of today’s most exciting thinkers and writers, The Water Dancer is a propulsive, transcendent work that restores the humanity of those from whom everything was stolen."
