5.0 out of 5 stars The harsh reality of a fight for freedom and dignity., 13 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Cane River (Oprah's book club) (Paperback)
Lalita Tademy brings the warmth of her family straight into your life and heart the minute you pick up this book.It is an overwhelming story of slavery,the struggle of everyday life and most importantly the strong bond between each generation of women.I fell in love with this book the minute I picked it up. I was moved by the tragedy that struck Philomene and despaired when she plunged into a desperately lonely sadness.The book made me proud to be a women yet equally made me feel insignificant,taking my freedom and modern life for granted. Each woman was determined to bring her children a better life, a better home and freedom, whichever way she could. This story taught me about the French colonies in the deep south and the differing relationships between slave and owner, many surprised me,also the strength, courage, spirit and determination of these remarkable women. How proud Lalita Tademy must feel to be a part of them. I will be first in the queue if she writes a sequel!!!!
