This story grabbed me from the beginning. Well researched,well written. I appreciated the depiction of the complexity of the lives of slaves at that time. This story allows for the inherent intelligence and wisdom of people who were not afforded the opportunity to become formally educated, as well as the conflicts within the white family members who were caught between the social mores and their true emotional reaction to the treatment of the slaves.
The voices of both readers were delightful to listen to.
Another one of those books that should just not end. John Keating's voice is perfect for this story. Loved every minute!
I absolutely loved the telling of this tale. Wonderful story read beautifully. As with any really good book, I was sorry that it had to end.
Very engaging story, but the reader's voice makes it all the more enjoyable! It's a long read, but not when you are listening.
