Steele Secrets is a wonderful book, grounded in history and the joys of research and learning just where you come from. It's about racial reconciliation, while being a great read. It opens with Mary Steele picking beans in her garden one moment and finds herself in a cemetery the next. She meets Moses who turns out to be a ghost. The next day she finds herself blocking a bulldozer about to mow down the cemetery to make way for school playing fields. The story continues as Mary and her friends research who was buried there along with who was related to whom. They need to figure this out in order to keep the cemetery from being destroyed. This is not only a book about how important it is to preserve history, including that of the most marginalized among us, it is also about how exciting and life changing research into people’s past lives can be. This novel clearly shows how we must fight for racial justice, but goes about it gently, winning over a skeptical reader. I highly recommend it. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
