This story is about a family. They leave their hometown because their father married a methodist in 1799 and they were shunned.They decide to go to Virginia, land of slaves.

I like this book. It is easy to read and I cared about the fate of the slaves. I did not care much about the fate of the family, I tought they were naive and stupid, even.

One scene in particular tore my heart and demonstrate the cruelty in those times. It really shows how slaves were thought of lesser being, like exchanging a boy for a horse.

Some parts were slower but others heartbreaking, it is a good combination.

I recommend it.
