This was an excellent book which gave much historical information about the Octroon balls and how these women were kept by the white slave and pklantation owners. It also focused on what life was like for the children born into that arrangement and what it was like for the free black business who lived in that era.
Very interesting historically-especially for a mulatto like myself:) ( )

GREAT book.
I think I look more forward to Anne Rice when she writes a fictional novel about historical characters or groups of people than I do to her Vampire and Witches series. ( )

I found this dull and overly long - I read it before a trip to New Orleans, hoping for some flavour, character but this felt like a historical romance, mannered, pretty but untrue. ( )

Very, very slow to get into like so many of her books, but once captivated by the free negros of New Orleans, I was intrigued and interested in their world and their stories. Richard was a true hero. I was glad he came through. ( )
