Reviews

well read - an ok story

(3 stars)

the reader did a nice job of reading clearly and at a good pace. the story is not much of a story. it starts off like it could be a good story of a white woman marrying a black man for convenience sake and having children then the story follows the child she abandoned. but it starts jumping many years at a time and just rushes on without much story behind it and suddenly in a matter of a few chapters everyone is old. this is a book you can skip.

Great Recording
