Reviews from Amazon:

kcpc5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. This book. Reviewed in the United States on February 14, 2022Verified PurchaseI think this this will be the next Where the Crawdads Sing, a book that will top the best seller list for months, if not years, and then become a wildly popular Netflix series. It’s a gripping family saga that draws you in from the first page. I couldn’t put it down and luckily had a Sunday free to read it all one day. Definitely, a five-star book that will be a book club favorite with lots of twists and turns and a mystery murder. I read it first for the plot and I’ll read it again to enjoy the excellent writing.

A. Imber5.0 out of 5 stars Page turned reviewed in the United States on February 4, 2022Verified PurchaseCouldn’t put it down. Saw it on the Today Show and got a sample and was immediately drawn into the story. So many elements about where we come from and who we think we are from the stories that have been told. A very well-written book with many twists and turns

BensonRunner5.0 out of 5 stars Such a beautifully written story reviewed in the United States on February 10, 2022Verified PurchaseI heard prior to starting this book that some readers found it difficult to follow the story due to the number of characters but I found the flow of the story easy to follow. I also loved when a character was introduced – Wilkerson does such a great job of bringing them to life.

Joyce Piket5.0 out of 5 stars Forever familyReviewed in the United States on February 3, 2022Verified PurchaseI loved the connection with family. I especially enjoyed the challenges that this family faced due to their color. Thought-provoking.

L. King5.0 out of 5 stars What a journey! Reviewed in the United States on June 6, 2022Verified PurchaseThis author beautifully weaves the story of the Caribbean experience. Though the focus is on Jamaica primarily, the themes of identity, love, and hope ring true for every island that has seen loss and muffled their truer selves.

Each character is beautifully developed and every question is beautifully answered.

I read this book in 1 whole day because I just became so invested in the journey of these characters. Well done.

Joanna M. Campbell5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written and richly layeredReviewed in the United Kingdom on February 25, 2022.A beautifully written novel which effortlessly spans several generations and is clearly narrated from multiple viewpoints. The characters are well-defined, captivating, and convincingly flawed. Like the titular black cake itself, the story is richly layered. The shattering effects of well-kept secrets and shocking betrayals resonate through the decades, while ever-present is the power and endurance of family love.
Highly recommended.
