What a treat to return to the folks from Yellow Crocus, again I experienced so many emotions listening to this book! Not always pleasant, sometimes I was just so angry! The narration was absolutely excellent as was the story. I could hardly put it down. Definitely a must read!!! I’ll continue to look for additional books from the author and narrator. Amazing!

The first book 'Yellow Crocus' was amazing. I was expecting this book to also be action packed. It was just 'blah'. Turpin always does a great job at performances but this wasn't her best. Sophie had a lisp at the beginning of the book and someone how Turpin didn't pronounce words with the lisp in the middle, and at the end, Sophie all of a sudden had the lisp again. There are some books that shouldn't be made into a sequel.

An excellent book with an excellent narrator. This is my third book by this author and I've enjoyed them all. Not knowing much about this time in American History, being British, these books have educated me through their powerful storylines. I was drawn into the characters lives and felt their anguish and pain. I was horrified at all the suffering the slaves endured, even the children, but the one thing that shone through the story was the strength of their faith in God. I would definitely recommend reading this for all the suffering the slaves endured hope shone through.

Any additional comments?
After reading (not listening) to the Yellow Crocus was delighted to see there was a sequel. It didn't disappoint. Informative, heartbreaking storyline and part of history hopefully never repeated.
Loved this book!! Not quite as gripping as Yellow Crocus but still an incredible follow up to the harrowing events from the first book. If you haven’t already, you MUST read yellow crocus, it’s truely inspired.
And Bahni, i could listen to her read the phone book, she has a voice like honey!
Very interested and well written. Heart lifting book.It is an Interesting historical story of USA.
