Manifested Dreams by Dr. Yvonne Johnson – Review by Donna Dawkin

Manifested DreamsManifested Dreams by Yvonne Johnson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It is the generational stories that keep the spirit alive and truly tell the tale of how history affected real people. In this short story by Dr Yvonne Johnson, we hear young voices tell the story of several generations of an African-American family. Through their combined history, told through the from the point of view of daughters who become mothers, we feel their both their frustration and elation.
With a good balance of historical fact and familial history, we see the dreams of a people manifest within the lineage of one family. The only thing I wished it had more of was pages!! Looking forward to this authors next work.
