Maurya's Seed: Why Hope Lives Behind Project Walls based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book opens up wounds delicately by discussing the aftermath of slavery and a fester explosion of emotions dealing with oppression. It brings to the forefront the struggle of surviving in during a revolutionary era in Brownsville Brooklyn. It gives a personal, clear and adequate description of what it was like during the busing movement in Brooklyn. The author brilliantly leans the reader a firsthand standpoint of the feelings, sights, sounds, flavor, language, and movement during that time. We are actually placed 'Behind Project Walls'. What I enjoyed most about the book was the intertwining between reality and the unseen. The spiritual rawness and realness was touching and moving. I felt a physical connection to certain parts of the story where particular characters are faced with life-changing spiritual occurrences. I also enjoyed how the plot and time setting fluctuated back and forth between the 1960s and slavery, also the gritty streets of Brownsville Brooklyn to the rural south. This book is a conversation starter and it provokes the reader to internally address their belief in hope and their beliefs in the connection to the past and to ancestors. I recommend this book for any reader who wants to be changed by what they read. I also thank the author for being courageous enough to address the themes she has and to allow Passion's story to come to life.
