    Like a fine wine

    Just finished a re-read of this book, and I have to comment on the many times I thought to myself that I had forgotten how well written it was. I think many of us love Mrs. Jenkins' books so much that we tend to devour them whole on the first read, especially if we're hyped by the excitement of a new release. This time through, I was really able to appreciate the subtleties and the arc of the story. This was a love story about people who saw each other's flaws and loved anyway, who love in spite of wrongs. This a story of people who trusted their love, and in doing so, found their way to loving each other. I don't think I missed that the first time around, rather, I didn't fully appreciate it. To be fair, it's easy to miss because the book is filled with so many interesting characters to get to know and intriguing little plot twists. Not to mention, the action is set against a background of war-torn Atlanta and Reconstruction-era New Orleans. As an African-American, it's difficult not to be distracted by the wealth of historical info about our race, much of which will be new information to most people. But even so, the love shines through, underscored by themes of ancestry, legacy, continuity and progress. And it is this complex and intoxicating combination that makes Mrs. Jenkins the brightest constellation in my historical black fiction sky.
