I got hold of this book while just browsing google ebook store. Once I started it, i could not help but finish it. The title is befitting the contents and I agree with writer that this is no fiction. Such mature is her writing that you sometimes suspect if it is really written by her but then editor explains this nicely in introduction at the beginning.
Linda narrates the story of her slave-hood and how she escaped the same. Much she had to suffer to the hands of 'bloodhounds', for that is how she puts slaveholders across. She had to pluck the flowers for her mistress when her father was buried in graveyard. She spent seven years in her 'den' without free air and light. She had to separate from her children due to the curse of slavery. As she suffered so much, she had a real good friend in the form of her grandmother, like 'fleecy clouds over a dark and troubled sea'.
this book is 99% true and once you start you can't stop
