"The Daughter of Union County" by Francine Thomas Howard
I will start out saying this was definitely one of those novels that you will either like or dislike. Well, I am a little in between because the author does bring out a lot of what was going on during that time of slavery. This was a read of much greed, strange family that dealt with slavery, domestic abuse, fear, racism and what I found most interesting sometimes even love? I still can't quite understand why I chose to read this novel other than the description of the read got my attention. To say I liked this read, well I can't say that to be completely honest, however I did feel that this author gave it her all with her writing and to give the reader a HEA ending was somewhat indeed interesting to me. I will say I am not interest in slavery but I just wanted to see how this author would lay it all out for the reader. To say this was a enjoyable read where I couldn't put down would not be true for me. However, being a book reviewer I always finish any book I pickup to read. This was definitely a very sad look at what has gone on in 'our world.' I am glad this is a fiction read and not a true story. My rating will be a 3.5 which equals out to a four because I did think this author did give the reader one very unforgettable read about the 'reconstruction era of slavery and indentured servitude' that you will either choose to like or dislike. It will be up to you the reader to decide for yourself.
I received the novel from NetGallery in return for my honest opinion.
