"A person can't just disappear from a Detroit sidewalk—poof—into thin air. Dead or alive, the missing are somewhere here on earth. But how do you find them?" ~ 5%
What seems to be a normal bright afternoon, Ozro Armstead leaves for work on his 37th birthday. At home, his wife and daughter prepare a surprise party. Later Ozro has lunch with his brother and waves goodbye. But he doesn't make it back home or even to his desk; Ozro disappears.
Life and Other Love Songs is best described as a slow burn. It starts off at a slow pace but slowly builds in the days, months and years to follow. It moves from the Great Migration to 1970s Detroit and 1990s New York. All the while connecting the dots to the man they love, miss and wonder about.
I am always interested in books with a setting in my hometown of Detroit. Anissa Gray did such an excellent job with describing the environment and getting it right. Her writing talent shows in this new release. Well done, ma'am!
Happy Pub Day, Anissa Gray! Life and Other Love Songs is now available.
