    In early 1800s Tennessee, two men find themselves locked in an intimate power struggle. Richardson, a troubled Revolutionary War veteran, has spent his life fighting not only for his country but also for wealth and status. When the pressures of westward expansion and debt threaten to destroy everything he’s built, he sets Washington, a young man he owns, to work as his breeding sire.

    Story
    What did you love best about Wash?

    I loved how the story, first and foremost, is about interwoven spiritual journeys -- the interwoven spiritual journeys of Wash, Pallas, Richardson, and so many others. Violence is present. Eroticism plays a role here and there. But both violence and eroticism are really deep in the background. Spirit takes center stage


    What other book might you compare Wash to and why?

    This book reminds me of Roots by Alex Haley -- for it's telling of the stories of the intersecting lives of southern white folk and their slaves.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you could take any character from Wash out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Rufus. He has a wonderful depth of character about him. I want to hear more about his experience on the boat -- about how and why he chose life over death


    Any additional comments?

    The actor who speaks the role of Wash, when it is Wash speaking in first person -- I don't know which actor that is, but he has a beautiful, musical voice, and I especially loved his performance
