Gathering of Waters by Bernice L. McFadden
Genre(s): Fiction, United States, African American, Historical, Historical Fiction
The rich text is shaped by the African American storytelling tradition and layered with significant American histories. Recalling the woven spirituality of Toni Morrison’s Beloved, this work will appeal to readers of mystic literature.”
Gathering of Waters is a deeply engrossing tale narrated by the town of Money, Mississippi–a site both significant and infamous in our collective story as a nation. Money is personified in this haunting story, which chronicles its troubled history following the arrival of the Hilson and Bryant families.
Tass Hilson and Emmett Till were young and in love when Emmett was brutally murdered in 1955. Anxious to escape the town, Tass marries Maximillian May and relocates to Detroit.
Forty years later, after the death of her husband, Tass returns to Money and fantasy takes flesh when Emmett Till’s spirit is finally released from the dank, dark waters of the Tallahatchie River. The two lovers are reunited, bringing the story to an enchanting and profound conclusion.
Gathering of Waters mines the truth about Money, Mississippi, as well as the town’s families, and threads their history over decades. The bare-bones realism–both disturbing and riveting–combined with a magical realm in which ghosts have the final say, is reminiscent of Toni Morrison’s Beloved.

One Song At A Time [+Video] [+Digital Booklet] by Jamie Grace
Genre(s): Christian & Gospel, Gospel
From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
pend any time at all with Jamie Grace, and it’s obvious that she’s special. Her infectious smile, bright eyes and her expressive way with words are all tell-tale signs: this is one unique girl. But the effervescent spirit in this young woman is even more powerful and compelling than what can be seen. Her contagious joy and message of hope can only be understood in the context of her story. And her struggle. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Jamie Grace learned two powerful lessons: one, that ministry is a way of life; two, that life is good, even when it’s hard. Diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome at age 11, her young life became a series of heartbreak and challenge, a long season of physical exhaustion, emotional stress and spiritual doubt. Then one day, inspired by the powerful testimony of Tammy Trent on the Revolve Tour, Jamie Grace came to a life-changing conclusion. “I heard Tammy speak and I thought, `I’ve cried enough. It’s time to accept my joy.’ It was just the long process of finally realizing that, even with Tourette’s, I still have something to do with my life. I love to sing. I have a story, and I’ve got to share it.”
One Song At A Time is one of my most anticipated full length albums of the year. On the heels of Jamie’s massive number one hit song “Hold Me” featuring TobyMac from Jamie’s Hold Me EP, I didn’t know how she could possibly follow-up on that type of introduction as an artist. It was well worth the wait, and this is not only one of the best debut albums I’ve heard, it’s also one of the top albums of the year. To call Jamie the next big thing in Christian music may be an understatement. Just like her mentor TobyMac, her album is accessible well beyond just the Christian music market. This year has seen a remarkable amount of female artists dominate in all music markets. From Colbie Caillat, Adele, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga to Laura Story, Francesca Battistelli, Mandisa and Natalie Grant, you can add Jamie Grace to that impressive list. I love the joyfulness of “Hold Me.” My youngest daughter Bethany just turned 5 years old and she sings “I love, I love, I love, I love the way You hold me” when she’s walking around in the grocery store. I’m really moved by the lyrics, “Just when I feel this crazy world is gonna bring me down, That’s when Your smile comes around.” As God’s children, it brings me such comfort to think of Him smiling down on us. “With You” and “1945″ are great examples of the many autobiographical, comforting and catchy songs on the album which is chock-full of hits, including the follow-up single “You Lead.”
One of Jamie’s strengths in addition to her soothing and strong vocals are her infectious and engaging lyrics. “You Lead” is a great follow-up to “Hold Me” with the electronic pop arrangement by producer Chris Stevens, and the prayerful and sincere chorus “You lead, I’ll follow, Your hands hold my tomorrow, Your grip, Your grace, You know the way, You guide me tenderly, When You lead, I’ll follow, Just light the way and I’ll go, `cause I know what You got for me is more than I can see, so lead me on.” She further demonstrates her commitment in the lyrics: “And I…know my God is still God and You got my back.” Jamie is truly a “God Girl” and is a wonderful role model for any age girl. Being a father of three young daughters, I heartily recommend Jamie’s songs and her ministry GraceTalk where she conducts Bible studies and talks about her unashamed commitment to Jesus. She wrote my favorite lyrics on the album in “God Girl,”–”And when my ears start hearin’ what people say, Hurry up find love `cause times tickin’ away, well I’m not bein’ lazy, I just waiting for, still waiting for the right boy, `cause I only want to listen to Your voice, so I’ll be listenin’, always listenin’ to You everyday.” Amen to that! With our societal pressures to date and lose our innocence, it’s so refreshing to hear a godly girl proclaim that she’s in love with our Savior. The song connects to the biblical Truth found in Song of Solomon 2:7 (MSG): “Oh, let me warn you, sisters in Jerusalem, by the gazelles, yes, by all the wild deer: Don’t excite love, don’t stir it up, until the time is ripe–and you’re ready.” That’s what Jamie’s all about, loving God with all of her heart, expressed in one catchy song after another. “Show Jesus” and “Come To Me” are also upbeat, catchy and filled with biblical Truth. I am a ballad guy, and I am excited that Jamie delivers two of her strongest songs as prayerful ballads, “Holding On” and the gorgeous closer, “Not Alone.” These are both piano based songs with Jamie revealing her heart. I can’t help but get emotional listening to Jamie yearning, “His arms are holding you, His love will see you through, When you try not to cry but to take it, All the stress, and the hurt and heartache, You may feel pain, But not as great as His name, You’re not alone, No you’re not alone.” God loves you so much. Lean on Him and He’ll give you strength. These songs are all for God’s glory. To You be all the glory. “Lord, I love the way You hold me.” Amen!
