    "Spellbinding"

    I couldn't stop listening to this book! Leslie Uggams does such a great job narrating, that I felt I was right there in the story. The music was a good choice also. I was a little disappointed in the way it ended, but all-in-all it is a thoughtful, well written and well read book.

    Story
    "Redemption"

    I redeemed myself with the book club girls. I'd recommended a couple of duds. Everyone liked this one! It felt like a spy novel or a thriller. So much insight into the covert, "intelligence" that was going on within the slave community! It was a page turner
