A good novel that conveys the horror and depravity of slavery in the United States around the time of the civil war. The author does a good job of entwining mental and supernatural haunting as a way of illustrating the damage caused to slaves by maltreatment at the hands of both sadistic and well intentioned white Americans. While the author's writing was a bit confusing at times, almost poetical in her lack of clarity, she still managed to paint a powerful picture.
