My Reviews

 
Insightful, Dramatic, Informative

Tough but informative read, full of dramatic turns. The story of Cora is one that shines a light on the struggles and tribulations of a Georgia slave. The story did jump around at times and there were characters that were easily missed because of so many facts. I would suggest reading this book with a blank piece of paper to jot down the names of each character, it will help. Overall tough start but great finish.

 
Informative, Interesting, Insightful

This book was very informative on a period of time often overlooked in US History. The scandals and horrific events about traffic children. This is a great story with many struggles and underling themes. There is a quote from the book that I believe could sum up life. "Life is not unlike cinema. Each scene has its own music, and the music is created for the scene, woven to it in ways we do not understand. No matter how much we may love the melody of a bygone day or imagine the song of a future one, we must dance within the music of today, or we will always be out of step, stumbling around in something that doesn’t suit the moment. I let go of the river’s song and found the music of that big house." I would highly recommend this book.

 
Adventurous, Fantastic, Addictive

If you don’t like this book you can end on book 1. This is a three book series thus far but book 1 has an end that doesn’t make you crave to continue the series. Interesting story that was a very quick read.
