    Mississippi plantation mistress Amanda Satterfield loses her daughter to cholera after her husband refuses to treat her for what he considers to be a “slave disease.” Insane with grief, Amanda takes a newborn slave child as her own and names her Granada, much to the outrage of her husband and the amusement of their white neighbors. Troubled by his wife’s disturbing mental state and concerned about a mysterious plague sweeping through his slave population, Master Satterfield purchases Polly Shine, a slave reputed to be a healer.

    Story
    Where does The Healing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare The Healing to and why?

    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.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Listened in three sessions over three days while driving. Relatively long and good driving company.
