This book starts with a great concept and is well-executed. The first sections individually follow the lives of three young people from three different continents, and then the fourth section recounts the intersection of their lives in 19th-century America. There is a lot of history packed into this moving saga, with slavery and the displacement of native people underpinning the story, but it is still fast-moving and intimate.
This is a beautiful story of three people from very different backgrounds whose lives intersect in the early 1800s in Eastern North Carolina. It's a great read for anyone who has an interest in how spirituality can transcend the boundaries of organised religion and for anyone interested in the history of the east coast of the United States during the era of the slave trade. The fact that the author based the book on factual history handed down from his family makes it all the more interesting. Thank you Michael Grayhawk for sharing this touching tale!
