I agree 100% with everything Susie says here…well…except for the Michigan bit. This book is truly amazing. Well worth checking out.
Have you ever read a novel that stabbed you in the heart? Convicted you for something you had no idea was an issue in your life? Left you sobbing (no, really, sobbing) at the last words?
Well. That happened to me the other day.
I was reading “Zora & Nicky” by the gorgeous and fabulous Claudia Mair Burney.
Claudia is a Michigan native…so you KNOW I love her.
Claudia has tattoos (which is how I met her)…so you KNOW we can get along.
Claudia is a a painter….so you KNOW I want to be her when I grow up.
But, really and truly, Claudia really got to me with this novel.
She showed me beauty, hatred, racism (yes, even in the North, even in these modern times), characters using hands and feet to be Jesus to others…mercy. Claudia showed me so much grace and mercy and love in this book.
