    Ever since running away at the age of fourteen, Paul-Edward, the son of a white landowner and a black slave, has had one dream: to own land every bit as good as his daddy's. While growing up, Paul-Edward loved, and feared, his father, but he loved the land unconditionally. Then, after a rash act of youthful rebellion, he leaves his family behind and vows to succeed on his own. However, for anyone black coming of age in 1880's Mississippi, this is no simple goal.

    Overall

    Book started off well with an interesting growth of the main character and supporting characters. However, the plot became predictable towards the middle, foreshadowing what was going to happen much to obviously, so the latter part of the book was easily guessed long before it was read, removing much of the interest. A particular chapter dragged on much too long and the plot was - like so many books these days - wound up in just too cute and to nice a package at the end. I was disappointed as it had a five star rating, and didn't merit that recommendation level.
