This multigenerational story of five Black women, four bound by blood and a legacy of powerful visions, carries us from the post-segregation South through the 1960s civil rights movement into the continuing racial and gender struggles of the early 2000s. These strong women navigate the tragedies and joys of their lives with dignity and grace. Often heart-wrenching, this beautifully written novel is a powerful examination of the effects of generational trauma. Recommended by Nancy

“In delicious, decadent prose, Denene Millner does what few authors can–compose a sprawling multigenerational tale that is necessary American reading. One Blood sings the song of the South in a voice that is heartbreaking, hopeful, and resilient. A masterpiece.”
–Tara M. Stringfellow, National Bestselling author of Memphis
