Mixed Blessings: Is race real? by J.M. Muse is a fictional novel that talks about people of different beliefs. The author starts up this novel when the government officials were trying to figure out which race Kimberly belongs to. At first, I was wondering what the officials are trying to figure out by questioning Kimberly about her race. But I get to know later as I read on that there are traces of discrimination between those that believe in black races and white races. This Novel points to the fact that when fighting for a cause, leaders should know the benefits and dangers of it.
This novel entails how minister Kublai Khan, the leader of the House of Jeremiah who believes in the black race and Pastor Dalton who believes in the white race, fought for the success of what they believe in. This novel has been written in such a way that readers will find it easy to understand. Also, the author explains the causes of the disagreement between minister Kublai Khan and Pastor Dalton, which makes this novel easier for the readers to comprehend.
In this amazing novel, there are lots of lessons a reader will gain. The author has skillfully tackled one of the key challenges we are facing in this generation, which is discrimination. Discrimination as being reflected starting from each family, community, and in our countries today. In this novel, I learn that though it’s a glorious thing to fight for the interest of our people, what is much more important is to be sure of their safety because only the living can enjoy the success of every cause.
One of the things I enjoy and gain from in this novel is the part of how Ahmed Reynolds, who is from the black race and Kimberly from the white race builds a very strong relationship even though Ahmed’s mother, Nana Rey did not want to support it. Their relationship shows us we can live together in peace if we can love and respect each other for whom we are.
There is nothing I dislike about this novel, it has been written to keep the readers engaged until the end. This novel contains a few erotic scenes, so it’s not suitable for a young reader. Also, the novel has been professionally edited. I rate Mixed Blessing: Is Race Real? 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend this novel to every leader in this generation and to every lover of a magnificent novel.
