A realistic and challenging historic fiction about slavery based on real stories and real people, their suffering and the cruelty of slavery. The need for people to work together to overcome social wrongs like the horrible historic truth of slavery is evident. The uplifting effect of religion and reading for the slaves is throughout the story a continuous hopefulness for the people suffering in the stories herein

As I am writing this review, it’s hard to ignore that I have just finished the book. The ending quarter of the book is an incredibly emotional payoff to the first three quarters of the book which are a bit slower paced. The book is, admittedly, problematic and it can be hard to separate my modern sensibilities from the ideas of the time. However, it would be foolish not to acknowledge the profound impact that this book had. And after finishing the book, I’m not surprised that it did.
