it was amazing

Excellent Read & Storytelling

Loved the story and characters. I've read several works of historical fiction, for WWII and the Revolutionary War, and this was every bit as compelling a read. But so much more due to the racial backdrop for most of the characters and story. I'm old enough to have witnessed some of this atrocious behavior as a child in early 70s Dallas. But seeing the depth of and viciousness of it on display here is simply overwhelming. And to see some now think it's still okay to treat others so poorly, I just don't have the words or understand it at all. I'll never see things as you do, but reading & thinking through your words certainly helps my perspective. Thank you! Keep on writing.
