جميلة ، مضحكة ، مفجعة ، وكذلك النهضة تماما بطريقة ليست بالبهجة أو مبالغ فيها. أتمنى لو كان لدي المزيد من الكتب مثل هذا لقراءة عندما كنت صغيراً. بدلاً من ذلك ، قرأت هذا مرارًا وتكرارًا.
When a white servant girl violates the order of plantation society, she unleashes a tragedy that exposes the worst and best in the people she has come to call her family. Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction. Lavinia finds herself perilously straddling two very different worlds. When she is forced to make a choice, loyalties are brought into question, dangerous truths are laid bare, and lives are put at risk. I finished right before bed last night, and I couldn't sleep forever because I just kept thinking about the story and the characters. My heart just broke for them all, and all the misery they had to deal with throughout their lives! All in all a wonderfully tragic story. You really feel for these characters. LOVED IT! :)
