Well written, well read. The DVD "The Abolitionists" mentions many of the Abolitionists in this book.

This was a wonderful listen. The readers were excellent. I often found myself lingering in the kitchen longer to "finish up" just so I could hear some more. If you listened to Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker and liked it this feels like a pre-story. Enjoy!

Excellent work. I enjoyed it very much. Reminds somewhat of Gone with the Wind. I like stories of strong women and Sarah was certainly that. Used CD as waiting list was shorter. Agree with comment above. Reader excellent.

This is a well written book. I had it on CD. The readers did an excellent job. It was a joy to listen to them even though the topic of slavery is not joyful.
