Book Review
When Oprah Winfrey mentioned that she played the lead role in the movie version of this story, I decided to read the book first. I never knew how cruelly the slaves were treated during the Civil War and the years afterwards. This books shows the how guilt and pain can weigh one down but perseverance, determination and community support can pull a person through. Now I know why they say: It takes a village to raise a child.
