Hidden Princess is an extraordinary novel, a literary masterpiece. Underscoring the Black Experience, Hidden Princess is the compelling love story and the life and legacy of Vivian Johnson, a troubled soul trapped in an even more troubling time in American history. The narrative is centered on Vivian’s unending relationship drama with Lee Hiram, her less-than-apt suitor, the microcosm of which Muhammad uses to display for the reader the depths of contemporary relationships within a greater overall context. Set mostly during the transition between the Civil War and the Great Depression, Hidden Princess chronicles the daily travails of a nation – and its people– in flux. Still haunted by the ever-present specter of racism, the Johnson family soon succumbs to the lure of the Great Migration, joining the millions of other poor Black families seeking to escape the oppressive clutches of the South. #HistoricalFiction Historical Romance
