Very good book! I highly recommend this reading because it places you after emancipation. Though it doesn't focus so much on the lingering injustices to former slaves during that time, the writer does not completely neglects it. However, the focus is on the lives of Black peoples: careers, family lives, and moving on from slavery and fastly approaching the turn of the century. I enjoyed the romance that evolved between the two main characters. But what I enjoyed the most was the history lessons as she mentions the 49-ers and she hints upon the Jim Crow laws in effect (mason/dixon line). I appreciate the author's obvious research into that time period of the 19th century, noting the technology of that time (telegram wiring, locomotive transportation). It brings forth the lost art of 'letter writing.' Beverly Jenkins also includes her sources in the back of the book. I'm looking forward to reading and commenting on the following two sequels of this charming trilogy.
