Glory unbound is an African American historical fiction written about Glory Bishop. From the beginning, you realize that Glory is not having it easy. Her backstory, the relationship with her mother, and Malcolm, the villain, truly shape your mind about what she is dealing with.
You also get to see Malcolm’s side of things and get a picture of how you could become evil and not just be one for the sake of it.
This is a beautiful story, and it is a delight to read how Glory deals with the reality of all the complications she faces. I predominately enjoyed watching her stand up and become her own savior. The story’s pace is slow, but it needs to be that way, so you get drawn in.
Glory’s personality dealing with the abuse and the ill-treatment she faced was tough to read. The story is written well and described in such a way that you feel next to every scene.
I recommend this book to fiction readers and those who like to read African American Tales.Tweet
