This was a very tough read at times, hopeful at others, sad, bleak, beautiful, touching. I had never read a novel before solely set during times of slavery, and it truly opened my eyes to what went on during that time. I was shocked to see some of what happened back then. J California Cooper didn't hold back on giving breath to those dark times, but also showed us the resilience some had to survive, and the beauty within them, when all around was trying to suppress and devalue their existence.
