This is a deep and powerful story which has its origins during the time of slavery and finishes with Henrietta living in England when her husband retires. Life didn't always work out the way Henrietta and hoped and wished for but she is such a strong character that whatever life threw at her she simply batted back again despite her heart hurting. Being from a mixed race background often meant that she wasn't accepted anywhere within both the black and white cultures. She seemed to always be on the outside looking in, much the same way she appears to be with her family.
Jill Treseder has created a wonderful character full of depth and also sadness. She is rich and engaging and her language is simply wonderful, really adding authenticity to her story. Through each revelation disclosed in the letters we gain a real sense of time and place. A sense of Henrietta. The letters not only chronicle her life but their content makes her reflect on her mistakes as well as her achievements. Secondary characters throughout give further substance to a wonderful read.
A fabulous novella that I really really enjoyed. Full of substance, feeling and an engaging and enjoyable story told from the perspective of a wonderfully crafted character.
