In the days before the Civil War, there lived a Louisiana people unique in Southern history. For though they were descended from African slaves, they were also descended from the French and Spanish who had enslaved them. They were the 'gens de couleur libre', the Free People of Color and in this historical novel, Anne Rice chronicles the lives of 4 of their number, men and women caught periolously between the worlds of master and slave, privilege and oppression, passion and pain.
This book wasn't my usual genre to read and I really just couldn't get into it. It seemed slow to me but then I usually read mystery/suspense.
