This book is a sequel to the first Sally Hemming's who was Thomas Jefferson's and Sally Hemming's last child. Thomas did love his children as Sally fell pregnant with her first pregnancy when she was in France and not considered a slave it took a good amount of his talking and a promise to bring her home. He kept his promise releasing each of his children at their majority. In his ledger's he said they had ran away or strolled as they called it.
This book has many twist and turn's outside of Monticello which didn't really happen in the Sally Hemming's novel. I liked the fast read and the spunk and sense of humor Elizabeth showed. I bought both novel's to keep.
Fascinating fictional biography of an actual person, Harriet Hemings, daughter of Thomas Jefferson and his slave, Sally Hemings. Provides insight into the complex issues of the abolition movement. Great book for anyone who loves history.
