I stumbled across this book on a list of books by female authors related to feminist perspectives of Black and Indigenous American women. I'm so glad I picked up this book and so sorry that until now, I had never read a woman's account of slavery in America. Once again, I feel my childhood education failed me. The story itself is intriguing and interesting, but it is unique in painting a picture of slavery as far more than physical brutality, which implications for women were significant and yet rarely acknowledged. I also felt quite fortunate that the edition of the book I came across was published as part of "The Schomburg Library of Nineteenth-Century Black Women Writers" with a fantastic introduction about the birth of Black American Women's literature (and to some degree feminism). It gave me all the more respect for the significance of the story and once again added more books to my list of 'to reads'.
