This was an absolutely wonderful book. It's my favorite by the author. The two women's stories are beautifully interwoven. I found some of the slave abuse passages disturbing but they weren't gratuitously graphic. It wasn't until I finished that I found out that some of the characters are actual historical figures. To me that gives the story even more emotion. I highly recommend this for fans of historical fiction or simply of a good story.
