The story was much better than I expected it to be--well told, with a theme that is still relevant. The characters were well developed, interesting and believable. The issue of slavery is one that is not past--there are more slaves today than in the 18th century.
My first e-book, thank you. I used to read a lot of historical fiction and this book reminded me why I like it. The story shows a part of history that there is too little written about and from a perspective I had not read before. I will read more in the series.
