The Unsettled by Ayana Mathis

In Ayana Mathis’s affecting new novel, a mother’s love is the driving force toward self-determination in the face of the ongoing onslaughts of an unjust society. Duchess, a strong and feisty woman living in a self-sufficient Black community in Alabama, and her daughter Ava, who struggles to make it in Philadelphia with her son, give voice to the courage needed to define life on one’s own terms while still embracing the family and community that make us who we are.
