Barbbowler |

Historical, personal novel

I loved this book. i was born and raised in dc and street names and buildings are familiar. my grandmother (white, dc high society) spoke of the slave camps and how the blacks came to dc. my great,great aunt spoke of attending lincoln's funeral as a small child. the relationships seemed so real in this wonderful novel.
