My Review

HerStory is a paranormal story that takes place during the beginning of slavery in America. Ayira is a young African woman who is one of the many people captured and sold into slavery. Ayira’s father was both a witchdoctor and healer in their tribe. His spirit haunts her as she travels from her homeland to America.

When the slaves reach their destination, a tribe of Native Americans attack the white men and rescue a few of the slaves, including Ayira. From the beginning, everyone in the tribe realizes there is something very different about Ayira. Her distance from the tribe causes them to be suspicious of her, but Ayira is being tormented by the dead.

The young woman believes the gifts that have been passed on to her are curses and torment her soul. Ayira must battle her personal demons, while coexisting with the Native American tribe. HerStory is a captivating read that includes the paranormal, love, and betrayal.
