Wow… What an amazing story. I can't believe I missed this one. Not only was it an epic story, it was incredibly thought-provoking and heart wrenching. I kept thinking how in today's political climate these are the stories we must return to. These are the stories to remind us of atrocities in our all too recent history, and to remind us that a family is a family is a family. I especially loved the woman who narrated Belle's character, though I had a little harder time with the narration of Lavinia, and overall it didn't detract from the story. I cannot wait to read the follow up novel.
This was a great book. . .well written, timely and very graphic, without being crude. The readers were exceptional. There were so many characters, at times I got overwhelmed, but the readers were authentic and their realistic voices helped me move forward with greater understanding. At times I was even brought to tears; the cruelty of people is surprising. I'm so glad I read this book. It's given me much deeper appreciation for people who struggled during the late 18th century. A must read for anyone who likes historical fiction at its best.
