Book Reviews


Incredible, heart-wrenching tale5 star

This should be required reading for all students. It’s really a travesty that stories like this are repressed in the south, sweeping our skeletons in the closet and bolting the door shut. To understand the mindset of African Americans today is to know their history, and reading this book is a good start.55


Such a good read!5 star

This book will open your eyes! The struggles this woman went thru was terrible.55


First hand records of slavery’s ugly face and hearts of gold5 star

Emotional, it shows the glimpses in to the life of slavery. She wrote her life and painted pictures of external and internal struggles, oppressions, endurance, etc..,55


Great writing sad story5 star

Great read. I’ve read several similar narratives, and they are absolutely painful to read. It really shows the reality of the world we live in. I would suggest that everyone read these first hand accounts from the slaves themselves. If nothing is gained but a conscience thought the author has succeeded.55

I wish I could speak to the author. Reading this book makes me wish I could somehow convey to the black race that not all whites hate blacks. I wish there is someway to erase the history of our country not only concerning black history but also our history concerning Indian History. My only solace is that God in in control. Faithful and Just. And He will recompense His judgement in His time.55

Extrodinary Woman5 star

What a shame our Founding Fathers did not outlaw the institution of Slavery after the Revolutionary War. The institution of Slavery will forever be a stain on the Red, White, and Blue. This story was a truly amazing first hand account of the horrors people had to endure under this evil institution.55


Riveting and heartrending5 star

What a thoroughly deplorable institution slavery was and is. The very idea of one person owning another makes my stomach roil. God created all men in his image. Nowhere in the Bible does it say one color of skin is more worthy of freedom than another. Thank you for sharing your story, I imagine the telling came at great emotional cost.55


Incredulous!5 star

I see the reason for fear of an level playing field.55
