Review:
The slave Eliza was born with fair skin and blue eyes. For a reason which she doesn't understand, she is not used as a field hand as others are. Not, that is, until she is older and the master's daughters begin to seriously hate her.

Set on a plantation in pre-Civil War Alabama, Eliza's story is told in the first person by Abram who cared for and tried to protect the girl. The author has written a potent, painful historical novel based upon the true recollections of Abram (a pseudonym for Doc Daniel Dowdy).
