Too much foreshadowing

by Patricia M on Jan 2, 2014

Great approach to an uncomfortable topic. However, I could have done with less foreshadowing throughout the book. Great description of characters and locations. I felt like I knew them and had been there.


Must read

by emily8 on Apr 26, 2012

My opinion is this is a much better book than "The Help" and we all know how highly that book is rated and I honestly believe this book would make a fantastic movie. I have already shared it with 2 friends and they loved it too! This author MUST write more; she has outstanding talents.


Wonderful story

by granmommy on Mar 18, 2012

This book showed another view of the slave and plantation days. The two worlds, (black and white) can be blended as the main character tried to do. This is a book I will recommend to my book group. It will be great for discussion.

Excellent reading if you have read the Help, you will read this, hopefully.

Wonderful book! Slightly sad towards the end, but turns out good!
