it was amazing
Read in January, 2012

I picked this book up the other night thinking that I would just read one or two of the memoirs. An hour later I was still completely engrossed in this book. What was done to the blacks during the time of slavery should not be forgotten, but this book to me was more about the triumph of the human spirit. Over and over again I was amazed at the things that these people lived through and chose to not be bitter about- a lesson we could all stand to learn again and again.
