Yes, I think everyone should read it in order to get a accurate account of slavery, not some sugar coated version.
Gone with the Wind, it should be compared to it to clarify the stark differences.
It made me cry and made me hurt for all those who lived under the whip of slavery.
As I said, it is a must read.
The characters come to life. The story is interesting and the writer takes you through the life of the characters in a very compelling way. You do not want to stop listening.
There is no comparison that comes to mind.
Very well read, and very understandable.
Hope is like a Persimmon Tree.
I loved the book, loved the story and will probably listen to it again.
Diana Gabaldon is an excellent writer. I listened to Dragonfly in Amber before I knew this book existed. I downloaded it, listened to it, then re-listened to Dragonfly in Amber. I just bought Voyager and will continue through her body of work. Excellent!!!
