The Water Dancer

Conductor. Treat yourself by reading Ta-Nehisi Coates’ debut novel titled, The Water Dancer. I completed reading it within twenty-four hours of its release because the well-told story grabbed me, and Coates’ characters, prose and plot are finely written. Protagonist Hiram Walker is a young slave whose life is transformed when he encounters the force of a power he has inherited. Hiram escapes from slavery and becomes a conductor on the underground railroad. I found this to be a powerful and imaginative story with finely written prose that exposes the center of our humanity, our aspirations for a better life for ourselves and those we love.
