This story detailed the lives of four people: their trials and triumphs; losses, friends and loves.
It begins during the antebellum period and spans the course of the civil war, the rise of president Lincoln and the eventual freedom of the slaves.
It was an engrossing and quick read, jumping from one character's perspective to another. A few complaints: The author wrote in first and second narrative for the same character which was confusing. Additionally, the slang for an Irish brogue was written out ("t'ank th'Lahrd we've got de only priest in Oireland that doesn't run at th' mouth") as well as the southern drawl("been at dis fo' a looong time"), which was difficult to understand. Several conversations were conducted in french that were never translated.
Otherwise, this historical novel was emotionally touching and informative.
