The author's search for her family history produced a vivid picture of the lives of slaves and free people of color in Louisiana at the end of the Civil War. Robin Miles shows versatility with the Creole and French characters at the core of this story. Her characterizations rely on accents and inflection and distinctly reflect personalities, family origins, and social status. Miles narrates effortlessly and smoothly, with no hesitation over the many Creole and French phrases and names. This production should bring an even wider audience to this popular title. J.E.M.
