I have read this book twice now, and I love it. The pretty much unknown story of blacks owning black slaves, it is a revealing and instructive story. But, it is written in such an -- I have to say endearing -- way. Hardly a character is introduces that his or her story is told, no matter how minor the character. I just loved that. Excellent choice of title.
