Just finished this for a local book group read and I didn't enjoy this book. I felt it was contrived and filled with every Southern slave-era stereotype available. The underlying premise was very good ... Read full review

This book got off to a great start. I couldn't put it down. Yes, a quick read. That said, overall, I found it disappointing... If a movie is made of this novel, I think that movie will be shown on LifeTime Television, and I don't mean that in a good way. Read full review

User Review  - Lauren - Goodreads

Utterly depressing book and another illustration of "white man's burden." I didn't understand why Lavinia's chapters were longer than Belle's. Their stories were equally important. I get life on the plantation was hard, but there was no levity to this book. A giant downer. Read full review
