I was interested to learn that much of this book is factual. Although the subject matter is at times gruesome, it is a superbly written story with captivating characters. Highly recommended!

If you’ve ever lived in Charleston or walked its streets, you had to have wondered what the city was like during its plantation days. Sue Monk Kidd takes you into that time with two perspectives: that of Sarah, the daughter of a judge high in the realm of Charleston society, and that of the slave that is given to Sarah on her 11th birthday. This is an unblinking portrait of actual slave life and the dilemma that the real person of Sarah Grimke had to face when she realized that she could not be part of the society- or the family - that treated human beings in such an inhuman way. It is fascinating, horrifying, terrifying and uplifting all at once. I’m still shaking my head at the bravery of the Grimke sisters. An incredibly well-told tale that you’ll not forget.

This was an excellent read. The setting, the history, and the characters were so interesting that the book was hard to put down. I didn't realize until the end that the story was based on real people, which made it even more relevant. I have enjoyed reading Sue Monk Kidd's books and this one is my favorite, so far.

With beautiful prose and a foundation of great research, Ms Kidd keeps us in suspense about every turn of events in antebellum Charleston and later in the North. What a tortuous life the slaves had, and the Grimke family torn by their customs and heart strings.
