When I was in High School, I read "Gone with the Wind" for the first time and loved it. I did not think about how the Slaves were portrayed - It was simply a love story to me. Since then, I have read it many times and each time have a new perspective. Two or three readings ago, I questioned the portrayal of slaves and slavery. "Jubilee" has given me a new perspective. It is also well written. I recommend it.
