Easter Venetta Bartlett left her tumultuous upbringing in Georgia hoping for a better life. Easter arrives in Harlem and submerges herself into the city’s rich culture. She becomes a writer during the Harlem Renaissance and is rubbing shoulders with legendary figures such as Langston Hughes. Easter’s success becomes even greater when she moves in with a benefactor who just wants her to eat, sleep, and write. But Easter’s carefree writing career may come to a halt due to an ultimate betrayal by someone near and dear to her.
Glorious is a heart-wrenching novel by Bernice L. McFadden. McFadden crafted a wonderfully imaginative tale that incorporated the eras of the Jim Crow South, Harlem Renaissance, and the Civil Rights Movement. You will feel like you’re right there with Easter as she celebrates her triumphs and as she learns from her trials. McFadden did an excellent job of including some historical events and figures which added to the authenticity of this storyline. Glorious is a beautifully written novel that shows Bernice L. McFadden’s mastery of storytelling.
