by Kenneth Davis (921 DAV) Review by Mrs. Moser
This is an engaging book about the lives of five enslaved people who were owned by four presidents.
It tells the story of their connection to these powerful and beloved Founding Fathers and the impact slavery had on their lives. It brings to light the huge breach between the ideals these presidents believed in and their actions, and it shows what slavery meant to the birth of our nation.
It’s a story of love and loyalty intertwined with cruelty and inhumanity.
If history, slavery and reading about the lives of people who suffered mercilessly so that others could live comfortably interests you, then this is the book for you.
