ahef1963: A weird tale, verging on if not actually horror, but certainly worth reading.

sturlington : abandoned
ahef1963: If I had a top ten favourite books list, this one would be on it. History, vampires, mystery, beautiful settings; it's grand.

Explicações
sturlington : Slavery, America
ahef1963 : I managed to finish it, but only with the help of an online source that steered me through what she was talking about. Unnecessarily dense.

sturlington : Sadly, it is not available at my library.
ahef1963: I love this one so much that one of my children is named for a character in this book. It is chick flick meets historical fiction and it is a great story.

ahef1963 : This is probably just me, but as I don't know port from starboard, I felt dreadfully lost in a book that is constantly needing the reader to know where the characters are on the ship!
