Beginning with “My Soul to Keep,” Tananarive Due laid the framework of a series which told the story of a secret sect of Ethiopians (the Life Brothers), who were blessed (or cursed) with the gift of immortality, 400 years ago. After many years of strife, and pain, one of the immortals, Dawit (David) Wolde found happiness in present day Miami. With a loving wife, Jessica, and a caring daughter, Kira, Dawit seemed to have found a semblance of peace after a life filled with loss and tragedy. Their idyllic life was soon destroyed, when Dawit’s past finally caught up with him, leading to a heartbreaking, and life changing conclusion for everyone involved.
