“Beautifully wrought with sumptuous historical detail, emotionally deep characters, and an exciting romantic conflict! Frantz immerses you in a fascinating look at plantation life, survival and adaptation, and a newborn nation with a story that educates as well as entertains. Her tale would make a terrific movie, a la Gone With the Wind ~ it offers all the visual richness, smart storytelling, and palpable intensity of a cinematic drama.
