"I consider myself and anyone else aware of her to be pretty lucky already as this author has a pretty powerful perspective and is more than capable of articulating her experiences and thought processes as it relates to the cultural upbringing of the African American experience. Her name is Yecheilyah Ysrayl."

Dottie Daniels, Author of the Zombie Apocalyptic Thriller, "Affliction"

“The author’s writing is beautiful. She captivates the dialect of the southern speak wonderfully and I found the description of each and every action and location to just roll off my tongue as I read.”

- Rachel Poli, on Renaissance: The Nora White Story (Book One)

The Stella Trilogy

Stella: Book One

"This trilogy hit the nail on the head and painted vivid pictures of what it meant to be black during the time of slavery. It also introduces an aspect many of us are not exposed to especially when one is mixed and is faced with the hard choice of choosing which “side” you will let the world see and how this benefits you and in the long run how it affects you as a person and your family. The character Stella is a strong woman faced with hard choices and carries burdens that we cannot fathom."

- Amazon Review, Kasapo Chibwe

Stella: book two

"If I had the power, I would put this book in the hands of every middle school child in America and let them truly understand what it means to be beyond the colored line. The thing is, the literary classics such as To Kill a Mockingbird and Huck Finn definitely bring up the issues of race, but they're incredibly separated from what it's portrayed as in today's world."

Anna Kopp, Author of The Lifeblood Series, Rise of the Chosen Ones

stella: book three

" Like the first book, Ysrayl works her magic of putting the reader into her characters’ minds to witness history through their emotions and perspectives. At one point in the story, the friends are trapped in their vehicle as it’s mobbed by a pack of violent racists. My heart was literally pounding at this point. I was horrified that anyone had to experience such ugly cruelty."

- Christa Wojo, Author of the SICK series, Digital Marketer

Introducing Nora White

 

When seventeen-year-old Nora White successfully graduates High School in 1922 Mississippi and is College bound, everyone is overjoyed and excited. Everyone except Nora. She dreams of Harlem, Cotton Clubs, Fancy Dresses, and Langston Hughes. For years, she's sat under Mr. Oak, the big oak tree on the plush green grass of her families five acres, and daydreamed of The Black Mecca.

The ambitious, young Nora is fascinated by the prospect of being a famous writer in The Harlem Renaissance and decides she doesn't want to go to College. Despite her parent's staunch protest, Nora finds herself in Jacobsville, New York, a small town forty-five minutes outside of Harlem.

Shocked by their daughter's disappearance, Gideon and Molly White are plagued with visions of the deadly south, like the brutal lynching of Gideon's sister years ago. As the couple embark on a frightening and gut wrenching search for Nora, they are each stalked by their own traumatic past. Meanwhile, Nora learns that the North is not all it's cracked up to be.

Can Gideon and Molly overcome their disturbing past in time to find their daughter before it's too late?

“Nora stood up on her toes and let her partner throw her over his back, let him throw her into the air again, and then slithered like her body was made of jellyfish underneath his legs. She danced as if she’d never had legs before, gliding and shaking in ways her father would never approve of. Nora flipped and split and cartwheeled around The Negro Club alongside Louis Jordan and The Nicholas Brother’s until the sweat began to congregate alongside her forehead and trickle its way down to her chin.”
— Renaissance: The Nora White Story Book One, by Yecheilyah Ysrayl
