My very first book by Sharon Foster-I couldn't put it down. The details are amazing in what she writes and it makes me really feel for the slaves and for Armentia. She went through a lot of tough times but I LOVED how the book ends. Will definately read more by this author!
I just started this, but it is a fascinating read. Foster tells the story from the point of view of an elderly woman relating her history. The woman is a black slave raised with a wealthy Cherokee/white family in the Cherokee lands just before the time of their removal. We follow her tragic story. It is a fast and great read based on the author's personal history and her extensive research. I can't wait to finish it and hope the ending lives up to the beginning. Great book for a discussion group, as it touches on a lot of little know history of the American Natives.
