Publisher's Summary

Randy Willis tells the raw-boned epic, based on his own ancestors, that gives American history a new face and a fresh voice.

A novel about adventure, family, faith and the character of a man who touched generations.

Twice a Slave is the story of a Cherokee slave, a forbidden romance, and tragedies that build faith. One man who is determined to find his purpose and discover his identity becomes a slave a second time, and he changes the course of history in Louisiana.

He was born into slavery before the American Revolution, the son of a Cherokee mother and an English father who faced incredible difficulties. Even though Joseph's life was threatened because of his race and faith, he became the first Protestant to preach the gospel west of the Mississippi River.

    Story
    "Great Story of Faith and Sacrifice 😇"

    This book won't be everyone's preference but I'm very glad for the opportunity to enjoy this true story that is filled with family, faith, and determination. 🌟

    This is the story of Joseph Willis whose life is a remarkable journey of slavery, prejudice, determination, forgiveness and faith. The challenges he endured in life were tremendous yet they made him a better man. This is not only a book about the life and ancestry of Joseph Willis but the heritage of the Christian faith and the sacrifices that were made to spread the faith across the Country. The USA was founded on Bible principles & standards and people like Willis pioneered the crusade to build churches and spread the Word of God. This book revealed to me of how much I take for granted, how grateful I am for people like Willis, and how blessed I am to live in a Country where I can worship freely. 😁 If you love interesting stories with religious history I highly recommend this book. I loved it!

    The.narrator did a good job with this book. All accents and male/female voices were clear and distinct.

    My heartfelt thanks to the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audio book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

    Story
    "Joseph Willis was an amazing man"
    What did you love best about Twice a Slave?

    I enjoyed the amount of work and research that was dedicated by Joseph's family to bring his story to life. I experienced emotions of joy, apall, anger, humility, sadness. Great story about a great man


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Joseph by far. What an amazing man. Humble, kind, reverent, joyful, tenacious


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed when Joseph and Ezekial first met Anna and her friend. So sweet, awkward and funny.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very long and detailed story. You really got an excellent sense of the family dynamics, the overall feel of emotions and prejudices, great historical sense as well.

    I received this copy via audiobookboom in exchange for an unbiased review.
