This book was about a slave being hunted by a man hired to find him The story was true to the time when slaves were sold and beaten I was shocked to read how colored people were treated, but suprised by the ending Would recommend reading this one. I read this in 2 days It s one of the most beautifully written books I ve read in a while, a dark story of a runaway slave and the white man who s tracking him for distinctive reasons that are revealed through hints gradually throughout the book.

This book was really two stories in one a young man escaping slavery in the south and the life of the man pursuing him This tale portrays the brutal ugliness of slavery in all it s many aspects, but I just had to keep reading to find out what would happen to William, the young black man. A beautifully written story of family, love, and redemption that deeply explores the ugly, complicated roots of racism in this country and also leaves you with a sense of hope Rich with detail and good characterization Recommended. Good book Nothing spectacular or mind blowing but an all around good read I liked the fact that the book is told from two character s perspectives and how the author conveys their emotions, there is some powerful stuff in here.
