Lisa Williamson Rosenberg, Embers on the Wind

The past and the present converge in this enthralling, serpentine tale of women connected by motherhood, slavery's legacy, and histories that span centuries.

In 1850 in Massachusetts, Whittaker House stood as a stop on the Underground Railroad. It's where two freedom seekers, Little Annie and Clementine, hid and perished. Whittaker House still stands, and Little Annie and Clementine still linger, their dreams of freedom unfulfilled.

Now a fashionably distressed vacation rental in the Berkshires, Whittaker House draws seekers of another kind: Black women who only appear to be free. Among them are Dominique, a single mother following her grand-m re's stories to Whittaker House in search of an ancestor; Michelle, Dominique's lover, who has journeyed to the Berkshire Mountains to heal her own traumas; and Kaye, Michelle's sister, a seer whose visions reveal the past and future secrets of the former safehouse--along with her own.

For each of them, true liberation can come only from uncovering their connection to history--and to the spirits awaiting peace and redemption within the walls of Whittaker House.
