"Foster (Passing by Samaria), acclaimed author of several books she calls `gospel novels,' writes vividly about faith and slavery in this fast-paced narrative...Foster describes the Southern hierarchy of women and slave owners and rebellious and submissive slaves with equally deft passages...the story is riveting and expertly told by an inspired, practiced storyteller." * Publishers Weekly *
