Dana, a 20th-century black woman, is suddenly and inexplicably sucked into the past, to a Maryland plantation in the early 1800s, in order to save the life of a young white child who would eventually live to be one of her forebears. Over and over, she returns to the future for barely enough time to reorient herself before she is transported into the past to rescue him yet again. Between each of her visits, several years have passed in the past, and the child grown older. Her visits become not only lengthier, but, especially for a black woman in the 19-century South, more and more dangerous. As Kindred opens with a bang, the reader can’t help but become immediately absorbed, getting a glimpse of how the book ends before even learning how it begins.

This is one of the best books that I have read this year. We read a couple excerpts from it in my American Lit class at school and I liked it so much that I had to go to the library as fast as I could to check it out and keep reading. I stayed up until five am this morning reading because it was so good that I could not put it down!
