Slavery from the owners point of viewThis book is a mess The author has researched Jewish chattel slave owners in the US but does not seem to have studied slavery from the pov of the enslavedThe characters don t behave in realistic ways This feels ike white guilt wrote a book Listened to the audio book I feel this is one of those times when the audio book was better The narrator was one of the best that I ve heard The first half of this book was great It really captured the complexity of the South during slavery and the relationships between slaves mixed slaves and their white masters However then the white mistress s Adelaide half black sister Rachel falls in Dark Awakening love with her master and starts a relationship with him The idea that she was actually inove with him and allowed the relationship to go as it did seemed so against her earlier character Then the fact that the sisters were able to come to a positive understanding about their situation while the master was away at war seemed so unlikely and so rapid that I just couldn t believe it I wavered with this book back and forth between three or four stars Some sections grab you pull you in and won t Hawks Way (Hawks Way let you go Other sections are weaker ordinary cute or holier than thou Unfortunately the ending was for me too neat and too sweet the result being I gave it three stars Iiked the book I can recommend it to others Many adore such endings The book covers many themes the production and trade of cotton the relationship between sisters of different color Jews in the South Jewish traditions discrimination of Blacks the bloody events of both the Civil War and the chaos afterwards when THE UNIONISTS WON WHAT THE BOOK DOES BEST IS Unionists won What the book does best is the reader feel emotional forces binding and tearing individuals between father and daughter daughter and mother between sisters and between Family Men lovers How did it feel to be black and discriminated against Think againhow did it really feel Can we understand this Can we put ourselves in their shoes but forget it they often didn t even have shoes Each character is not good or bad but both good and bad This made them believable There areove scenes some uite explicit and Creative Participation lengthy TooengthyI appreciated that the book concludes with an afterword documenting the history and the presence of Jews in the South during antebellum times How many actually had slaves and how did this come to be given their own heritage of discrimination in Europe and slavery in Egypt Bahni Turpin narrates the audiobook She dramatizes In my view when an author s words are themselves emotive further emphasis is really not needed One easily hears who is speaking infants youngsters Blacks Whites slaves and gentry There are even shrill chirping birdswhich I felt were too oud It s not perfect but I m giving it five because of how interesting I found itAlso posted HEREThis is an epic sort of story "one that seemed to take me a while seemed to take me a read but one I m very glad I did Dealing with slavery and sisterhood in the ead up and duration of the US Civil War in the mid nineteenth century Sister of Mine is told from the perspective of two young Southern women one the daughter of a rich Jewish Cognitive Radio Networks landowner in Georgia and the other her slave and secret half sisterIf you re not from the United States you might want to familiarise yourself with the basics of the war and where the various states are positioned before starting if you want to get the most out of the bookI can t tell you if every detail of the history is correct but there does seem to be a staggering amount of research that went into this It s not that it overpowers the story but that the casual mentions of everything from foods to fashions seemed to have been carefully researched before being put on the pageThis is historical fiction which means there s plenty of sadness to go with the better times There are a few points in the story where you re going to find some of the major players very difficult toike but that seemed realistic to me and it Personnel Management in Government leftots of room for them to change and grow over the years and through the warNobody is perfect here and it is all much complex with the topic of slave.
