A sweet story about slavery and race issues in 18th century America. The story itself was quite dramatic and emotional. Kathleen Grissom obviously knows how to portray emotions through her words, specially through lavinia's words.
As for historical fiction goes, story about southern american and the whole slavery and immigrations are always something that i find captivating. so, i really enjoyed a lot reading this unique story. One of kathleen's strongest poin was her capability to create a very well-developed and unforgettable characters. The sweet Lavinia and loving Mama mae are both m favorite characters .Altough, i have to say that sometimes the story got a little bit slow specially through the middle of the book near the end. it was quite sad and melodramatic in the end. but overall, it was an enjoyable book to read !
