This book combines tragedy, mysticism and suffering. There are a few happy moments but not many. I had a hard time engaging with Granada and had to keep reminding myself that she was only
...12 years old when she was banished from the big house and the protection of the mistress. Polly was the Healer and thats where some of the mystical came in. She was the best part of the story. There was the typical plantation horror , very hard to read that someone's child is taken from their arms or that the slaves are actually thought of as stock. It's nothing new but always painful to read. I would have given the book more stars but there was just something missing for me.MoreLess

I absolutely love this book. I was shocked to realize it was written by a white man. He did his homework and I was captivated by the characters in all of their circumstance and ignorance of that 'freedom' meant. Really shows how brutal the industry of slavery was. The 'master' calling his brutality scientific was incredible. His arrogance led to tragedy in his family too. I love how it ended!
