I love the period and the view point of the slaves
Kitchen house - similar time period
Wasn't as compelling as some, but still an excellent read
At the very top of the list.
ANY KNOWN BLOOD. The story takes you from girlhood to womanhood and has you inside the minds and hearts of the people and their circumstances as they are controlled seemly by the universe. Yet in their despair they know who they are and what is right, true and decent despite desperate circumstances.
Warmth and intimacy
Hmmm… I would have to think about that
Tell us about yourself!
I like books about cultures I don't know and this was one. A vacation spot for slave owners and their concubines was new to me, especially in Ohio. The author did a good job of covering a wide spectrum of thuoght by both slaves and owners and the ending was very realistic and beliveable.
This book about men taking their slaves to a summer resort should say so in the description.
