It's not often I am stumped for words in a review, and not for lack of a tale, but because of its utter brilliance. I've ruminated all day on what to write and fear I've worn out my backspace button. Yet, no matter how far I wander away from this newly finished book, Rene's thought provoking message lingers and demands my full attention. MANUFACTURED WITCHES is a masterfully woven story pulsing from beginning to end with the magical heartbeat of acceptance. Told through the eyes of Nat, a boxcar kid seeking employment in Texas, a world of hate and love unfolds, both beautiful and terrifying. In one world, monochromatic grays for clothing and institutionalized oppression blackens the communities around Nat. In another world, a rainbow of colors in every shade of freedom is offered without strings attached . . . well, no strings save for the threads that tie Nat to all others in a house built on a foundation of love. Magic is not only presented as an otherworldly gift, but as something all people possess. The requirement? Acceptance. Individual magic appears only when an individual accepts who they are, regardless of society's definition of what is acceptable, good, and wholesome. The worldbuilding is sublime and perfectly matches Nat's patchwork-quilted journey from lost to found. The bizarre and unreal blooms to life on each page and I found my curiosity asking as many questions as Nat, exploring the hallways and closed doors of my own dreams and nightmares. Rene's writing easily pulled me in and beautifully captured each character until I was lost within the folds of their individual heartaches and triumphs. I can't recommend MANUFACTURED WITCHES enough. Take a chance and discover the multi- colored heartbeat of magic. You won't be disappointed!
