5.0 out of 5 stars Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Written by Herself, 5 July 2011

This review is from: Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Written by Herself (Kindle Edition)
I wasn't going to read this book as the title itself suggests a harrowing existence. The reviews prompted me download and read it...and i'm so glad I did. I agree that it is beautifully written which enables the reader to really sink into this dreadful account.

This book highlights the shameful past of the US and how it was for families born into the pure evil that slavery is. How could anyone ever think that it was ok or normal to treat human beings as less than even animals because of the colour of their skin? To know that slavery still exists in some parts of the world today is unimaginable. Linda could have curled up and died a multitude of times but she persevered through endless hell in order to save and secure her children. Her faith in God was tested so many times,and still she trusted that He would do right by her and her family. That is love!

Be prepared to feel every emotion as you read this account of the slave girl's life. You're going to need tissues, herbal tea to calm you down and some quiet time to digest it all.

I wish I had read this at school instead of Kes! Download it now, it's a fabulous read.
