Every Friday a member of Listening Books staff recommends an audiobook to take you through the weekend. This Friday, Abbie recommends Conjure Women by Afia Atakora. She said:
"Conjure Women is an incredible novel that reminds me of Toni Morrison's writing. The story centres around three women - May Belle, a healing or conjure woman, her daughter Rue who is following in her footsteps, and how their lives are interweaved with Verina, the daughter of a plantation owner. The writing is so rich and the characters so well drawn that at times I didn't feel like an observer, but more that I had somehow become part of the story and knew the characters as people on some level. The chapters alternate between time frames before, during and after the American Civil War, and while it is a bit of a slow burn, there were several points in the story where the different narratives clicked together to reveal something that made me gasp aloud. It is sometimes a hard book to listen to, because Afia Atakora doesn't shy away from the brutal realities of slavery, but even so I was fully gripped by this audiobook all the way through (and even stayed up until 2am one night to finish it)."
