If you enjoy history or historical fiction, then this is a must read! Sue Monk Kidd does an excellent job of making two historical characters (the Grimke sisters) come alive. This book makes me want to read their original writings. Additionally, her description people who were enslaved has depth. This books makes the reader consider many to aspects of this era (early 1800s). I found myself wondering about the internal conflicts that must have occurred in all thoughtful people at the time. I could not stop reading and after two days I have come to view many groups histories differently including women's fight for equality, abolitionist movement, Quakers, and the fight of racial equality.

very disappointed that I was tricked into ordering some 5 page book review when I really wanted the book. What a scam.

buyer beware on Amazon book sites.

I enjoyed this book more than any book I've read in years. Ironically, I didn't read it but listened to it. I ordered it from the library and was surprised when I picked it up to find tapes. I'm so glad I listened first, because Sarah and Handful came alive in the voices. Their characters and relationship gripped me immediately, and I'm still in their thrall days later, but the real takeaway is a better understanding of slavery from two very real perspectives. I'm excited to read it now and experience it in a new way where I can savor the beauty of the way the author puts words together. My hat is off to Sue Monk Kidd!

REVIEW was most helpful to the BookClub I belong to as it provided critiques we do not normally consider, such as the interference on Kindle created by Oprah's comments.

This book is a very good thought provoking book. It is the second book I have read of Sue Monk Kidd.

What a disappointment to find I had ordered a "book" that was a review rather the actual book. It appeared in the list with the actual book and I didn't pay attention to the fact that it said review. Lesson learned. Not worth going through the return process. I love this author, so may order the actual one at a later time.
