Publisher's Summary

Eugenia Mae Spotswood, the daughter of a failed aristocrat, longs to regain the life she lost. The slave Tom wants one thing: freedom. After becoming the property of Eugenia Mae, a dangerous affection grows. But he learns freedom is not something she can give him - he must fight for it himself.
Clyde Bricket, the farm boy responsible for Tom's capture, has always believed in the South. But he soon learns that sometimes the only way to redeem yourself is to fight against everything you thought you believed in.

Not My Cup of Tea

I am usually a Civil War story fanatic, but there was something about this story that never connected with me. Maybe it was the way Eugenia started by whining about her life and the number of slaves she used to own and the embarrassment of not owning them anymore. And to go from that Scarlett O'Hara self centeredness to suddenly helping the underground railroad. I had a hard time believing in this about face. It tainted this book for me.

The narration by Karen White was nuanced with the right tone and cadence for this story. She is enjoyable to listen to.

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.

Life during the Civil War

Any additional comments?

Entertaining, interesting and Enjoyable

Story of how 3 lives intersect right before and during he Civil War.

Eugenie Mae Spotswood, Naive about the world and sets unforeseen consequences into motion when she frees Tom.
Tom, a slave
Clyde Bricket, a boy who changes his view on slavery throughout the story and the son of Toms former owner.

Eugenie ends up becoming a member of the Hero's of America or a red string, the underground railroad for rebels against the war. Helping to take care of injured soldiers.
Tom was freed by Eugenie, ends up becoming a scout for the Union army.
Clyde even though he believes in the ways of the south he ends up fighting with the Union Army
The story follows each of them through this time period in their life and the ways in which each of their lives are changed.

It was heartbreaking listening to Tom trying decide on a last name.

Absolutely hated the ending.

Karen White did a great job with the narration as usual. Her character voices are great. Nice voice very easy to listen to. Always enjoyable listening to her narration.
