But it is interesting. I would agree with other reviews that this book is a bit dry, but for those interested in the subject matter it would be worth the read.
I appreciate Graham’s micro view at such a large issue, and how straightforwardly each story is told This is NOT a good introductory book into the subject matter of slavery. I appreciate Graham’s micro view at such a large issue, and how straightforwardly each story is told. These stories individually nuance the taught history surrounding slavery, and as such should not be read with the aims of gaining mo overview of slavery.
That is not the book’s purpose [which is why I wouldn’t recommend this to someone with a novice understanding of slave systems]. Graham’s ability to highlight the differences between the individual stories and what was considered typical and her insistence on informing the reader that there is still much we cannot know about these women’s stories are where the book gains most of its value.

The supplemental primary sources are also lovely, not only in fortifying her statements but also in partially demonstrating her process. Sep 13, Kate rated it liked it. I tried really hard to read it line-by-line, but I found myself skipping parts. It’s certainly interest at points and I feel I have somewhat of an understanding about women in slave society, sys it didn’t read well.
It was slow and had a lot of legal terms and such that were simply boring. I more preferred the second story of the elderly woman who freed slaves in her will, but that was because it went by faster and was better written. I think these could have been publish not a good book really.
I think these could have been published as detailed essays or articles rather than a book. Jun 21, Sam Kramer rated it liked it. I think the topic really had potential even as a historigraphical account but Graham just made it extremely dry and didn’t speculate as critically or as innovatively as I would have liked.
