Kindred, a terrifyingly realistic journey through time, is brought to you by Octavia Butler, a MacArthur, Nebula and a two time Hugo Award winner. The protagonist Dana, a 21st century black woman, is drawn back to the antebellum south to save a prominent white ancestor repeatedly throughout the course of the novel. Butler has a incredible ability to make the reader believe in the impossible. Kindred is a prefect introduction to her fantastically executed science fiction novels. ENJOY!
