Day 2: Top #RSL Book of 2021 It was very difficult to choose just one top Read Soul Lit book from 2021. I read so many excellent books last year. So I decided to pick 3 – favorite nonfiction, favorite fiction, and favorite poetry collection. On to the books…. Yellow Wife – Sadeqa Johnson Yellow […]

This story is told from multiple points of view – Orleanna, Nathan Price’s wife , and their four daughters. We never hear the voice of […]
