    A must read I found this to be one of the most powerful novels I've read I'm from South Carolina and I love Charleston but not always her history Im very sad that the courageousness of the Grimke Sisters is not well known here Wonderful writting the atrocities of slavery and its affects are so well depicted in the voices of Sarah and Hettie Thank you Sue for sharing this amazing story 5 HUGE stars
