Great lesson given in history

A bit hard to read because of how the author shows the way the slaves were treated, but very well written. Excellent book.

I was only able to finish this book because i had nothing else to read. This book did keep me reading though. I would recommend it as an African i found this book slightly disrespectful. I felt like Muhuru (i forgot his name) seemed quite flat and the book was quite predictable.

    Predictable

    This is the first book i have read by this author and I was not impresssed. Not only was it predictable but at parts unbelieveable. (But you will see it coming) A lady of means marries a poor merchant and not for love, really! She runs away from governess work but is willing to trap herself into a marraige with a man she met once because she thinks her Aunt is tired of her. Really! The husband is a fool to think she will bring himanything but trouble. No page turner here.
