Having been reading novels dealing with ante-bellum life in the south since my teens, much of the material in this novel was old hat, however, the readers were wonderful and the tale from the slaves' viewpoint was what held my interest. I'm still enough of a Pollyanna to think that not ALL plantations were subject to the stereotype white owners portrayed here; I tend to want to believe that some were operated like Tara in GWTW. Be that as it may, I can still recommend this book and especially enjoyed Bahni Turpin's narration.
