Customer Review

on 29 October 2008
In the words of a born slave, who after a decade-long struggle achieves freedom, written to women of her own time, Linda Brent writes of her life in slavery and her long plight towards freedom.

Her experiences rise from the page and are now grounded in my memory. There are experiences of ruthless masters and mistresses, but also of family and friends, deep trust and helpfulness.

The strength of this autobiography is the author's use of her own words, shaped my time, culture, and the wish to protect certain parties.

I learned from this book, which gives a personal and intimate view at slavery and The United States circa 1860. Recommendable.
