Almost as good as Cane River, this story weaves true events in U.S. history with some of the knowledge the author has uncoverd about her own family history. Written in the voices of recently freed slaves, it is touching and heartbreaking at the same time. Lalita Tademy, who did a masterful job in Cane River has a knack for engaging the reader in a thoughtful way. It's not a pretty story but the lives of the characters are so vivid and real one can't help but become absorbed in the telling of it.
