    Henry Townsend, a black farmer, bootmaker, and former slave, has a fondness for Paradise Lost and an unusual mentor, William Robbins, perhaps the most powerful white man in antebellum Virginia's Manchester County. Under Robbins's tutelage, Henry becomes proprietor of his own plantation, as well as of his own slaves. When he dies, his widow Caldonia succumbs to profound grief, and things begin to fall apart.

    Rachel says: "wonderful and highly recommended"
    "Lets call the whole thing off"
    Overall

    You say non-linear, I say disjointed. You say complex, I say directionless. You say thoughtful, I say soporific. At last! a book I can/will not finish... read by someone who might want to consider a career change. A (possibly) interesting tale poorly told.
