I found There Was a Spirit to be a very well written book that told a great story. Although it centered around Sorority life, it is not a book that non-greeks cannot relate to or enjoy. The drama, the suspense, the friendships, the blossoming love are all things that anyone can relate to. And the way the book tied back to relevant history of the sorority, the university and the town was very clever.

From the author of the New York Times bestseller and 2014 Edgar and Anthony nominee Reconstructing Amelia comes another harrowing, gripping novel that marries psychological suspense with an emotionally powerful story about a community struggling with the consequences of a devastating discovery. Told from the perspectives of Molly, Barbara, and Sandy, Kimberly McCreight’s taut and profoundly moving novel unwinds the tangled truth about the baby’s death revealing that these three women have far more in common than they realized.

Being There is a satirical novel by the Polish-born writer Jerzy Kosinski, first published in 1970. A film based on the book was made in 1979; Kosinski co-wrote the film's screenplay with Robert C. Jones.

According to Biddle (1993), Kimberly got more publicity because she was seen as an innocent girl and therefore an innocent victim. Her case attracted more coverage because her parents revealed that she was a virgin and as such could not have got Aids through sexual intercourse. Much criticism was directed towards doctors as being uncaring she was hailed as a heroine.

As the president of her sorority at Casperton University, senior Najwa K. Jackson was a force to be reckoned. With university racial tensions extraordinarily high, black students were labeled as either a part of the solution or a part of the problem. In 1974, Najwa's character and mental stability was challenged as she tried to uphold her identity as a black woman as well as her sorority's principles. That year, history for Casperton changed forever.

I googled my sorority, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, and this book came up, so of course my interest was piqued. There are other books on the market about sororities and none that I know of about SGRho. The plot is not about us, in particular, but is an awesome story of honor, tradition, bonding and sisterhood. I only wish the sequel is available for purchase.......

THERE WAS A SPIRIT is a poignant portrayal of college life during the early 1970's. It focuses on the unique experiences of African-Americans attending a primarily white university during a period of political and racial upheaval. The story begins in the early part of the century when racial dynamics were even more intense and even life threatening. Readers are introduced to Sadie Mae, one of the founding members of Omega Pi Alpha Sorority. Her story is an attention grabber, and it immediately draws you into the book. However, to discover Sadie's full story, readers must first move ahead several decades and meet Najwa Jackson, the main character.

Najwa Jackson is attending Casperton University, and is a proud member of Omega Pi Alpha Sorority. She has big plans for her senior year of college, particularly as it relates to the sorority because she has been elected chapter president. While on the surface she seems to have everything together, she deals with insecurity, loneliness and uncertainty about her future. As the story progresses, we meet her friends, family and associates, get a taste of Black Greek life, and a glimpse of political issues such as abortion and racism. Najwa's penchant for history her desire to learn more about Sadie's life and role as co-founder of the sorority, result in the discovery of a much more complete view of Sadie's life. What she unearths rocks the university to its very core.

Kimberly Noelle has ambitiously taken a coming of age story and integrated past and present events while addressing relevant social and cultural issues. Because there were so many layers to the story, there were times when I found myself wondering how it would all fit together. The author immediately piqued my interest in Sadie's story, but then shifts and focuses on Najwa. Sadie's story was sparsely dispersed throughout the book and while it was eventually resolved, I found myself getting frustrated. In addition, there were times when I felt the scenes depicting college and sorority life were tedious, at times adding length, but not much else. However, I am glad I stuck with the book because, in the end, the story was heartfelt and satisfying. (RAW Rating: 3.5)

There Was A Spirit By Kimberly Noelle 349pp (2004)

There Was A Spirit is set in 1973 and tells the story of Najwa Jackson, a

college senior at the fictional Casperton University located in Casperton,

Ill.

I like historical fiction and was interested in reading about college life

in 1973. Except for a few references to Angela Davis, Patti Hearst and

turntables the book really did not deal with what was going on in 1973 and

instead focused on Najwa's trials and tribulations as the leader of her

sorority. Her problems leading the sorority to me were not reflective of

the time period and the book could have easily been set in the 80's or

90's.

The book discussed the community service of the sorority, but overall, had

the effect of playing into the negative stereotypes about Greek life

instead of debunking the stereotypes. The only time the sisterhood became

the least bit concerned about what was happening on campus was when a plan

they hatched up negatively raised their profile on campus and they engaged

in damage control by speaking out about injustices at the school.

There was a touching story about the founder of the sorority but I did not

think it was successfully woven into the plot. The sacrifices of the

founder only served to make the activities of the sorority seem even more

trivial.

The book did a good job capturing Najwa's uncertainty about her future and

about role as a leader on campus. To that end it may be enjoyed more by

high school or college students. However, the author did not do enough with

the story line to make a non-Greek adult like me care about Najwa or her

sorority.

I am generally a very slow reader and I read this book in two days. Its just hard to put it down because you have to find out what happens next. I am looking forward to Kimberly's next book!
