The is an engaging story about a black healer before the Civil War on a southern plantation. Well read and easy to follow plot and characters with strong insights to that period and its social order.
Like The Help it explores being black in a world that sees blacks as inferior and in The Healing as property to be sold, used and traded. If you liked The Help, you'll like this one too. If you're interested in pre-civil war history, this book will provide insights to that era and the social order.
Listened in three sessions over three days while driving. Relatively long and good driving company.
