It was a time where you dreams could kill you…it
was a time of slavery.
Rain” is a glimpse into one man’s and one woman’s journey from slavery to freedom to helping another. We’ve heard and read stories (true and fiction) of men and women sold and abused;
of families ripped apart and others killed for dreaming of running away, let alone those who were hunted for doing just that. Ms. Snyder takes us into this world through the gentle eyes of Albert.
I won’t tell you
much more about Albert’s story, as it is more the simplistic manner in which Ms. Snyder tells that makes “Albert’s
Rain” stand out from other similar stories.
There is quietness to
her two main characters, Albert and Rayna. Both are strong in their own internal
manner, willing to take risks to survive and standing up for others in need. They
are also stubborn in their demand to stand up for the other.
Rain” makes for an appealing read for a still afternoon.
