    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    B.J. says: "Good, but with reservations"

    Overall

    Because if you do, this book will not help you at all. There is not one uplifting thing to be found. Full of cliches and a predictable story line of a typical southern plantation. It makes you wonder how many bad things can happen to one group of people without going insane? Apparently this family can take much more than I ever could because it's one bad thing, over and over and over again. Just when you think something good is coming...guess what? Bam. Bad. The main character must have hit her head on a rock or something because she's as stupid as a rock. I found myself yelling out loud towards the end of the book. Skip it unless you want to be depressed.
