    Joseph Romm, one of Rolling Stone magazine’s top "100 Agents of Change", has focused his talents on helping us all to increase our language intelligence and to better understand the art of persuasion. Romm demonstrates that you don't have to be an expert to vastly improve your ability to communicate. He has pulled together the secrets of the greatest communicators in history to show how you can apply these tools to your writing, speaking, blogging - even your Tweeting.

    The writer has done an incredible job of presenting an array of techniques used "behind the scenes" to channel our thoughts and actions into the direction that the "hidden" director has chosen. All the while, we think we are intelligently and thoughtfully making our 'own' decisions.

    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.

    This book is such an encompassing story that opens the door to the real world of the south and the people it considered "non-white" and thus not due any value. The writer creates the visual pictures that draw you in. It's characters are well drawn, the story itself is interesting and a triumph of human character in the face of injustice.
    I look forward to another book by this author!
