    I received this book for free from the publisher Revell Reads in exchange for an honest review This was an insightful historical novel about three generations of women from Detroit It takes place during the civil war, the Detroit riots, and present day Out of the three stories, I found Mary s the civil war one to be the most compelling and interesting The present day storyline was probably the weakest just because there wasn t anything super exciting going on and it was focused on d I received t [...]

  6. Erica Boycesays:

    This is a heartbreaking, heartwarming story about love and hate across generations of women in a Detroit area family Bartels does a beautiful job of showing how racism has affected the love stories of three women living in three different eras Though her novel is technically historical, the messages she conveys are universal and gorgeously written.

  7. Danielle Urbansays:

    We Hope for Better Things by Erin Bartels is a one astounding read This literary debut novel holds so much intensity I felt the pain, loss, love, and hope It was like a fresh battle wound that would not fade A constant reminder of what never died Still wounds like these exist, today.In this story, I was swept up into the drama mystery of one journalist s family history An interracial marriageback then, it was not looked upon as happy thing It was seen as a deterioration to society s ru We Hope f [...]
