In July, we are going to discuss „Crooked Hallelujah“ by Kelli Jo Ford.
The author, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, tells the fictive stories of several generations of Cherokee women in America. Narrated in a non-linear timeline, these Indigenous women strive to navigate their lives in Oklahoma and Texas, even as they struggle with economic injustices or face intergenerational trauma. Told from the perspective of different characters, readers gain an authentic glimpse into the dynamics between mothers and daughters in the Cherokee community. This moving, multigenerational debut novel is an important reminder of the strength of matriarchal bonds and their importance to society.
