Stella is reminiscent of a wonderfully written slave narrative, a story of history and pain, it is brilliant opener of the Stella series. Beyond the Colored Line is a fascinating walk through the ages—from slavery, to segregation, to the black power movement, to modern times. Through the eyes of one mixed race woman, the author touches on major events in African American history, allowing the reader to experience them in real time.
The story deepens when Stella decides to live as a white woman and raise her children as whites. Nothing is just simply black or white.
However, in order to get the full experience of the story arc, it would be a good idea to start from the beginning. It was very well written. Historical without being boring. Accurate but not preachy. It would be appropriate for teen and adult readers alike. In particular, I would recommend it for literature classes or history classes.
Adults who want to read it for personal growth should absolutely do so. She writes evocative literature dedicated to the promotion of African American culture and American literature. Her name is Yecheilyah Ysrayl. Like Liked by 2 people.

Oh my goodness, now if only I could write blurbs like this. I was on the edge of my seat for a summary! Historical fiction is so touchy for me as I am already an extremely emotional person but I am preparing myself for my waterworks.
I am glad you enjoyed it. That would be amazing if you introduced it to your book club. Please keep me posted. That is one crowd pulling blurb. I do not do historical books but will have to give at least one of them a try at some point. Simon spent several years working odd jobs and traveling after leaving school.
