really liked it

An excellent story about the perils of women, both black and white in the Antebellum South. The author creates a great parallel between the lives of free and slave women that I did not truly appreciate until the book was complete.

I did find the dialogue to be a bit confusing at times but the storyline allowed me to overlook this.

The author also does a decent job of creating some suspense with a twist on the last page! An overall good read...perfect for a book club that contains a diverse group of women!
