Synopsis

Celeste's Harlem Renaissance by Eleanora E. Tate

It's 1921, and when Celeste Lassiter Massey goes to stay with her Aunt Valentina in Harlem, she is not thrilled to trade her friends and comfortable North Carolina surroundings for scary big city life with a famous actress. While Celeste absorbs the excitement of the Harlem Renaissance in full swing, she sees as much grit as glamour. A passionate writer, talented violinist, and aspiring doctor, Celeste eventually faces a choice between ambition and loyalty, roots and horizons. The decision will change her forever.

Reviews

Tate has an eye, and an ear, for the ambience of the era. Celeste and her friends and family are well-conceived individuals, both real and imagined...Absorbing - Kirkus 'Both sobering and inspiring, Tate's novel is a moving portrait of growing up black in 1920s America' #NAME?

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
