Linda | 129 comments I enjoyed this book at the beginning. As I went along I got more confused as to who and how everyone was related. I found it enlightening as to some things that occured during the time periods covered. I gave it 3 stars.

NancyJ (nancyjjj) | 5217 comments I got stuck in the middle of this book and it took me a long time to get back to it. I'm so glad I did because it's a very powerful book. Each chapter introduces a new character (in the other family or in the next generation), so it was hard to maintain a momentum. I really enjoyed the Africa chapters because those stories were less familiar to me. There was also a story about a pregnant free woman (in Baltimore maybe) who was kidnapped into slavery. It was absolutely heartbreaking.

Joanne (joabroda1) | 7448 comments I was another who enjoyed it probably more than you did. I became a little rattled myself with the time jumps, but got the hang of it by following the family tree closely.


Linda | 129 comments I agree that is was a very powerful book. I just had a hard time reading it and keeping track of who was who.
