I’m pleased that the Historical Novel Society reviewed my latest novel, The Driver’s Wife. The reviewer calls it a “fascinating novel.” I thought I’d share an excerpt:
“This is also a love story with a twist: the forbidden relationship and marriage of a white man and a slave and its repercussions among the residents of Leighlin Plantation. The author examines how the relationships between blacks and whites can differ, and she shows a masterful command of the customs of the era. The novel is well-written, with well-formed and credible characters. I enjoyed reading this novel, although some readers might be made uneasy by the subject matter and how it deals with slavery.”
You can read the entire review at the HNS website. Spoiler alert for those who haven’t read the novel yet, though.
