By the end listening to the Randolph conversations was draining. Thomas' vitriol was acrid. This book left me with a variety of unanswered questions, but being it's focus was Martha, it's understandable not as much resolution was given to the hemings and the fullness of other characters. Interesting look into history all the same.
Fascinating story which has prompted me to research the "historic" from the "fiction". I'm hoping my research shows that Jefferson's daughters' adult life was much different that the brutality she experiences in the novel. Sally Hemmings plays an intricate role in the novel, as she indeed did in Jefferson's household and his life. Francesca
Has inspired me to watch and read more about Sally and the time period ...love the book style and narator
Excellent book! Thoroughly enjoyed becoming acquainted with the Thomas Jefferson family through this fascinating account of their lives. Reader was excellent!
Lots of history about a one of our founding fathers and his wonderful daughters. The story was very inserting to listen to. Just enjoyed it.
Wonderful story. I enjoyed the narration as well.
This book was fantastic! We discussed it extensively in our book club and we all learned a lot about that time period. I enjoyed the narrator's voice changes as well.
I totally enjoyed. The author took her time to describe in detail without rushing through or leaving you with questions. She covered many aspects of life during the period in an interesting way, without all the brash language. Excellent. The southern accent of the narrator, I thought contributed wisely to the book.
I really loved this book. If you like historical fiction you will love this. It\'s very well written and smooth. The narration takes a few chapters to get used too but I ended up looking forward to hearing her voice.
I very much enjoyed this novel with all its historical substance. I do agree with another reviewer though that the narrator's choice of accent, sounding like Olivia de Havilland in Gone With The Wind but with very little emotional variation, was somewhat annoying. Still a good audiobook but could be better.
