About the Author
"It's haunting and militant and very visceral and compassionate, [a] heart-wrenching story and painful to read."-- "Diana Evans, author of Ordinary People"
"Vital, important, and humane. Everyone needs to read this book."-- "Jenn Ashworth, author of Notes Made While Falling"
"In style and theme, the most obvious comparison is with Toni Morrison's Beloved."-- "The Guardian (London)"
"Remembered has drawn comparisons with Toni Morrison's Beloved: both are unflinching and haunting in how they address the legacy of the slave trade. Battle-Felton's voice is entirely her own, however, and this book feels vital for our time...[This] debut is not an easy read and nor should it be. Fortunate are those of us that only experience such brutality in the pages of a book. Afterward we emerge more enlightened with our hearts and minds expanded. Remembered will stay with you long after reading."-- "Irish Times (Dublin)"
"Yvonne Battle-Felton's Remembered is an enchanting tale of hauntings and redemption. Battle-Felton's vision is epic, her insight is piercing, and her characters are unforgettable."-- "Margaret Wilkerson Sexton, author of The Revisioners"
"Remembered is stay-up-later-than-intended fiction. Its women are enthralling in their three-dimensionality, inspiring and flawed in equal measure...Full of subtle magic, steady resilience, and characters you'll feel like you know, Remembered is a force to be reckoned with. Potently of-the-moment, Yvonne Battle-Felton's novel is both current and able to stand the test of time."-- "Foreword Reviews (starred review)"
"Battle-Felton emulates Beloved by mingling a stark depiction of slavery's cruelty with a folkloric portrait of African American culture...A lyrical vision of family reunion brings the novel to a moving conclusion...Impressively ambitious and keening with emotion."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
