Publisher's Summary

Eugenia Mae Spotswood, the daughter of a failed aristocrat, longs to regain the life she lost. The slave Tom wants one thing: freedom. After becoming the property of Eugenia Mae, a dangerous affection grows. But he learns freedom is not something she can give him - he must fight for it himself.

Clyde Bricket, the farm boy responsible for Tom's capture, has always believed in the South. But he soon learns that sometimes the only way to redeem yourself is to fight against everything you thought you believed in.

    Any additional comments?

    Entertaining, interesting and Enjoyable

    Story of how 3 lives intersect right before and during he Civil War.

    Eugenie Mae Spotswood, Naive about the world and sets unforeseen consequences into motion when she frees Tom.
    Tom, a slave
    Clyde Bricket, a boy who changes his view on slavery throughout the story and the son of Toms former owner.

    Eugenie ends up becoming a member of the Hero's of America or a red string, the underground railroad for rebels against the war. Helping to take care of injured soldiers.
    Tom was freed by Eugenie, ends up becoming a scout for the Union army.
    Clyde even though he believes in the ways of the south he ends up fighting with the Union Army
    The story follows each of them through this time period in their life and the ways in which each of their lives are changed.

    It was heartbreaking listening to Tom trying decide on a last name.

    Absolutely hated the ending.

    Karen White did a great job with the narration as usual. Her character voices are great. Nice voice very easy to listen to. Always enjoyable listening to her narration.

    I had high hopes for this book, but I was disappointed. The storyling dragged on forever without much original thought. The characters were predictable and after a

    while I became bored, just wishing for the end. The American Civil War was a terrible period of time and it takes someone special to tell a fictionalized tale not yet

    shared.

    The narration was well done,considering the material she was given. The characters were portrayed as well as expected..

    Story
    "Throwing in the towel"

    After listening to the first couple hours I'm calling it quits. I'm sorry, but I'm finding the story slow, the writing mediocre, the characters one-dimensional and mostly unbelievable, and the narrator not good (terrible accents). I wanted to like it because I was given this book at no charge in exchange for my unbiased review, but I'm sorry, I just don't. Admittedly , I am quitting early, which I don't normally do, so maybe it gets better, but I'm doubtful... which is why I'm calling it quits.
