I read this in a Women's Lit. class I was taking, and this story is so moving. I was in tears when I finished the story. This story gives you insight on how a Black man was robbed of his freedom and fell into the chains of slavery. His death along with his wife is moving. It is a Romantic/ Tragedy novel.
