I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook from start to finish. I listened during my commute to work, a bit over a half and hour each way and I looked forward to getting in my car to continue this story of two girls/women who live very different lives but still connect to each other. They influenced each others lives and others against great obstacles. I laughed and cried while listening and greatly appreciated the authors end notes regarding the real history behind this story. I definitely recommend this for anyone who is interested in the history of slavery or women's rights and just an all together wonderful piece of historical fiction based on real people and actual events!
