Great book

I love Beverly Jenkins historicals and contemporarys. I learn so much about black and native American history. And the story is great too. Thoroughly enjoyed the story of Vivid.

Disappointed

I am a fan of Beverly Jenkins previous work. And one of the reasons I purchased this book, was because of the characters Galeno Vachon and Raymond Leveq. In which the author states in the end of her book "Indigo" that the Vachons were mentioned there. Since I loved this...
I am a fan of Beverly Jenkins previous work. And one of the reasons I purchased this book, was because of the characters Galeno Vachon and Raymond Leveq. In which the author states in the end of her book "Indigo" that the Vachons were mentioned there. Since I loved this character, I was hoping to read more about him in Vivid. Galeno or Caleb is mentioned but as a older person. Even Hester's last name was not Wyatt. And with Gail Grayson in Indigo her son's name was Jake. But here in Vivid-he has another name?
The author has a tendency to change things around. And it is not consistent. Such as in Through the Storm -Raymond's name is changed to Raimond. For me it takes away from the character, when these details are changed. I did like the story of Veveca becoming the first woman doctor though in the area. Even if in the beginning the people were too small minded to appreciate her.
