User Review  - Margene Edwards - Goodreads

I liked this book although it is sad and hard to read and finish sometimes. I got caught up in the lives of the slaves at the turn of the 19 century, a little earlier than most books about slavery. I think she is a good writeer and I enjoyed the historical part of it too. Read full review
