Review

"Stunning. ... Family is at the core of Remembrance, the breathtaking debut novel by Rita Woods." --The Boston Globe

"An ambitious, absorbing novel. ... Woods creates memorable characters in all four settings, each with a distinct purpose that helps make the impossible relatable. Remembrance is a well-researched, epic historical fantasy." -- NPR

"Woods’ writing is assured, the historical settings vivid, and her characters fully realized. Hand this to fans of Yaa Gyasi’s Homegoing and Octavia Butler''s Kindred, who will appreciate this complex, genre-blending debut." --Booklist

"Fine attention to sensory details and brutal honesty concerning the horrors of slavery and racial relations over more than two centuries of American history make this a standout." --Publishers Weekly

"The novel''s originality makes it worth reading." --Kirkus Reviews

Rita Woods’ deft writing and compelling narrative makes it difficult to believe that Remembrance is her debut novel. While some commenters have remarked that the jumps between points of view detract from the stories, I find that to be one of the novel’s strengths. Rita’s intriguing descriptions of Gaelle’s and Winter’s interactions, Margot’s survival and escape, Mother Abigail’s overarching presence and life in Remembrance propel the novel and compel contemplation of the women’s positions, predicaments and powers. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and found her characters in all four settings memorable, remarkable, and relatable in their loss, endurance, suffering and flourishing.

A story of the past and present, Remembrance is a beautiful tale of 4 strong women. Follow these women through their journeys as you learn of their losses, the horrible atrocities they endured, and watch them persevere. Their suffering transforms into the strength to save others and remake themselves. If you like historical stories, strong female characters, and magic, I highly recommend Remembrance.

A Spiritual Journey
Reviewed in the United States on May 24, 2020
This book was a spiritual journey for me, evoking the feelings and the imagery of our struggle and faith through slavery. That struggle continues today. Thank you Dr. Woods for tapping into our history so that we never forget.

Hard to navigate

I found it very confusing, going from one character’s chapter to the next without completing what happened in the end leaving it incomplete.more like an incomplete puzzle.

It’s a bit of a difficult book to read. The good these women had—whatever they could preserve—was taken from them, and there is no turning away from it. But their power to protect the world and what is good in it—that was forged through generations, finding expression not just in a woman’s ability to transform material reality, but in the gift of healing, giving birth, loving each other—remains everlasting.

Big Disappointment!!!
Reviewed in Canada on May 23, 2020
To categorize this book as "Historical Fiction" is misleading and deceptive to the reader. This mystical, fantasy story drags on and on, and I found myself struggling to reach the very disappointing end. I wish I had not invested the time or money I spent on this book.
