Críticas: "McFadden's thorough research and passion for her subject creates a brilliant novel."
--Oak Ridger
"Until fate throws him squarely in the path of evil, Harlan Elliott leads a pretty routine existence as a young black man coming of age in 1920s Jazz Age Harlem. But when Harlan and his close friend are invited to perform in Paris, they get sucked into the maelstrom of horrific world events."
--Booklist, Editors' Choice: Adult Books for Young Readers
"A moving epic that follows the life of one man, Harlan Elliott, The Book of Harlan weaves real-life characters from McFadden's own life into a fictionalized story about the treatment of black people during the Holocaust."
--Deep South Magazine
"McFadden shows how enduring the human spirit is, carving out pockets of happiness and fulfillment even in the most oppressive corners of a racist, pre-Civil Rights-era United States and fascist Europe . . . This is not, however, a doom-and-gloom book. McFadden also fleshes out Harlem in its golden age as a safe pocket for black America to thrive, and the opulence, creativity and joy she conjures is intoxicating . . . In this work of historical fiction, many more real characters make appearances . . . McFadden weaves their lives together with ancestors from her family to create something wholly elegant and hypnotic, putting a new face on World War II."
--Eugene Weekly
"From Macon, Georgia, to Harlem, and from the City of Lights to Weimar, Germany, Bernice L. McFadden's latest novel follows Harlan and his friend Lizard, two black musicians who are captured by the Nazis during WWII and sent to the Buchenwald concentration camp. The Book of Harlan blends family history and world history, fact and fiction, to revisit a haunting chapter from the past."
--Hello Beautiful
"Hidden history comes alive in this novel about an African American man from Georgia who became a musician in Harlem, played in Paris, lived through the horrors of the Buchenwald concentration camp, and spent his final years in the turmoil of the 1960s."
--World Wide Work
"Spanning six decades, readers are taken on a journey from the upper class home of an upstanding preacher to the outskirts of the Harlem Renaissance, crossing the ocean to the concentration camps of Nazi Germany and winding its way back to black pride and a humble Brooklyn dwelling. Like I said, McFadden does a lot. Fortunately for readers, she does it well."
--Read in Colour
"McFadden has weaved a tale of undying love and affection that will not only pull at your heartstrings but will also enlighten and inform."
--LitIsh
"Based on exhaustive research and told in McFadden's mesmeric prose, The Book of Harlan skillfully blends the stories of McFadden's familial ancestors with those of real and imagined characters."
--Monlatable Book Reviews
"Journey into the extraordinary story of a man who was born December 24, 1917--and lived a vivid life...Excellent...History and music enthusiasts will adore this book."
--Coffee Breaks and Bookmarks
"This book is exceptional. It is a great read well worth your time."

Praise for Gathering of Waters by Bernice L. McFadden:
"McFadden has created a magical, fantastic novel...This is a startling, beautifully written piece of work."
--Dennis Lehane, author of World Gone By
"McFadden works a kind of miracle--not only do her characters retain their appealing humanity; their story eclipses the bonds of history to offer continuous surprises...Beautiful and evocative."
--Jesmyn Ward, New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice)
"Read it aloud. Hire a chorus to chant it to you and anyone else interested in hearing about civil rights and uncivil desires."
--Alan Cheuse, All Things Considered (NPR)
A Booklist Top 10 Historical Fiction title for 2017

"McFadden is a skillful, powerful writer...She crafts her passages with the minimalist magic of a Miles Davis trumpet solo...A true blues beauty of a novel."
