This book provides great historical value of not only the lives of Jefferson and the Hemingses; but also of the values of the time. It provides insight into the thoughts of the era. I found it fascinating. We should become educated of the thoughts and customs of the times as provided in this book before we judge the actions of our historical leaders.
This is one of the best books I have listened to. I did not want the story to end.
Craig Wasson is the best narrator. He brings the story to life.
I loved this book. It is uniquely written with the main character telling the story. It is an excellent look back to life in these times and appreciate how different their lives were.
Nora Roberts has a new fan in me. This book was excellent. I was sorry when the book ended. I immediately downloaded the next 2 books and can't wait for the story to continue.
Excellent historical honest perspective of the Civil War. I plan to listen to this multiple time to retain the historical value.
This book provides an insight to REK without idolizing him. He is portrayed as a leader who struggled as we all do and was stolen from us too early. It also provides excellent insight into concepts of the times.
