Michaels - the title says a lot; yet, the story is so much more. This is the fictionalized, true story of a West African princess who, at age 13, was stolen from her village, force-marched to Goree Island, shipped like cargo to America, sold at auction into slavery, transported by wagon to a Florida plantation, and forced into servitude and motherhood. This, however, is not your typical slave’s story. It is one of the most honest accounts of a child’s introduction to, a girl’s indoctrination into, and a woman’s circumvention of the rules, laws, and conventions of institutionalized slavery. This story is inspiring, uplifting, endearing. Princess Anta Madgigine Jai Ndiaye was clever and resilient. Her strong will and sheer determination to survive - and thrive - in the face of adversity is the heart and soul of this amazing story. Zephaniah Kingsley was the plantation owner who purchased Princess Anta, and stripped her of her royal title and her given name. He renamed her Anna, for simplicity’s sake – one of the many assaults he would inflict on this young girl. Zephaniah was different from most masters of his time – more liberal, less harsh. But, he was still a plantation overseer; he was still a slave owner; and, he was still a master. Yet, his role in Anna’s life was not stereotypical; it was an exercise in vacillating duality. Surprisingly, most of the story was told through the dreams of, and the interaction with, a young woman named Rylind Corliss. Rylind had vivid dreams. Some would even call them nightmares. As the dreams intensified, she began to dread sleep, avoiding it whenever she could. Rylind’s lack of sleep got her fired from a job as managing editor of the Jacksonville Post Gazette when she failed to catch obvious typographical errors in a story about the town’s mayor. After researching the life of the woman in her dreams, Rylind convinced her friends to accompany her on a tour of, and an overnight stay at, the Kingsley Plantation. When Anna’s ghost made contact with Rylind, a mind-boggling collaboration began. This collaboration was the vehicle which drove this story from slavery’s past to freedom’s present and immortality’s future. I enjoyed the creative and ingenious ways this author took a historical look at slavery, added a paranormal flair, and interspersed a true-life story. The result was a prototypical novel which does not fail to entertain, to enlighten, and to enthrall. I recommend I Was by K.A. Michaels to anyone who wants to read a wonderful saga, full of history and paranormal activity. So, you can read it as historical fiction, or you can read it as paranormal fiction. Either way, read it. It just might change your life. It changed mine. 4 stars My favorite quote from I Was: “I died once already”.
