Review - Jericho Road by Icy Snow Blackstone


Title: Jericho Road
Author: Icy Snow Blackstone
Publisher: Lyrical Press, Inc.
Buy Link: Jericho Road


Rating: You Need To Read

Reviewed by: Laura

Color-blind love exposes the sins of flesh and violence.

Past and present embattle Vietnam veteran Wade Conyers life. The scars of war and his past relationship with an African-American soldier threaten his marriage to a Southern socialite.

Wade's views of racial equality have already caused a rift with his father. What will happen when his sisters relationship with a half-Native American unravels the camouflage disguising secret lives, adultery and ultimately murder?

Never having read Ms. Blackstone's work, I eagerly began Jericho Road. I quickly became engrossed in the 70's and all that family relationships were and were not in those days. Having lived in that era, I can truthfully say that she nailed it. As the reader meanders through the various lines that are drawn between the characters, one cannot help but feel forced to turn page after page in order to find out if and when the webs of lies are going to unravel. The plots are delicious in that there are more than one but following them is effortless. The myriad misunderstandings and mischaracterizations run rife throughout the book and only add to the stunning ending that no one expects. I recommend this book to anyone who understands family discord and blind love.
