RadioladyToronto, OntarioAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5May 16, 2011RadioladyToronto, OntarioAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5The final book in this series was well worth the wait! It captures a tremendous blemish in our history (that unfortunately still exists in some countries)! The author captures the struggle in government to abolish slavery without detracting from the difficult journey Grace makes from London to be reunited with her husband, who was sold into slavery in the US. While painting a sad picture of the lives of those sold into slavery, there is always a frame of hope surrounding it, because of the determination of a few to end this abomination. If you're looking for a series that will touch you, start with the first book and continue on, it will leave an indelible print on your heart.
