    PDF/EPUB David Fuller Å PDF/EPUB Sweetsmoke ePUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk sweetsmoke mobile, Sweetsmoke PDF/EPUBI was powerfully drawn into this world of Cassius a slave on a tobacco plantation in Virginia in 1862 Sweetsmoke He has survived a lot in this twisted world and though he is privileged to work as a carpenter instead of a field hand he is in danger of losing his humanity He remembered first hand the trauma of separation when his mother was sold He was raised by Mam Rosie and for a brief time her husband Darby as Darby was sold soon after He grew tall and made himself a secret promise that he would be different He would not love anything He would make his heart coldBut we’ve all sang that song at times you know the Simon and Garfunkle one “I Am a Rock” and that outlook

    PDF/EPUB David Fuller Å PDF/EPUB Sweetsmoke ePUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk sweetsmoke mobile, Sweetsmoke PDF/EPUBI live in the south Every day I see relics of days that to some symbolize the glory of the south to others a time of great shame for humankind I was not born into southern culture indeed my own family fled from persecution elsewhere to settle in the United States in the days before World War I but I still feel the scars that the enslavement of African Americans left on our world When a friend from another country had trouble enjoying a visit to Charleston saying he could feel the pain of slavery as he walked the streets of the city it was a knife to my heart It is not the way we live now at least not in this part of the world and while we are not perfect I wonder how long those who inhabit this land will bear the responsibility of scars of the pastMany people have a romanticized vision of slavery due in part to its depiction in novels and movies But even the kindest rendition

    PDF/EPUB David Fuller Å PDF/EPUB Sweetsmoke ePUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk sweetsmoke mobile, Sweetsmoke PDF/EPUBI finally figured out what made this book so awkward to read Only the free people's speech was in quotation marks This left all the slaves' speech out of quotation marks When some speech is in quotes and some isn't it makes for a very difficult read It made it hard to tell what was really being said and what was thought process It was an interesting concept for writing a Civil War era historical fiction novel but in practice it just ended up being awkward and hard to readI ended up skimming the last 100 pages or so of this book

    PDF/EPUB David Fuller Å PDF/EPUB Sweetsmoke ePUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk sweetsmoke mobile, Sweetsmoke PDF/EPUBI have to admit that this book's basic premise was strong enough to carry me through the story's few rough patches Set in the midst of the Civil War 1862 the story introduces us to Cassius a slave carpenter He enjoys a special status among the slaves at the titular Virginia tobacco plantation not only for his skill as a craftsman which makes him valuable than mere field hands but also because he was a childhood playmate of the plantation's master The death of his wife and child several years ago has made him rather insular and unlike some of the other higher ranking slaves he prefers to keep a low profile and not get caught up in the plantations' social jockeying and intriguesHowever when Emoline Justice a local free black woman herbalist and fortune teller is found murdered Cassius decides to cautiously pursu

    PDF/EPUB David Fuller Å PDF/EPUB Sweetsmoke ePUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk sweetsmoke mobile, Sweetsmoke PDF/EPUBThis is a dry earth book filled with very fully realised characters and the sort of incidental details I love in a narrative the kind Mark Twain would deplore a drifting scrap of cobweb the precise way the wind shakes the trees suchlike thingsThe protagonist is an extremely emotionally repressed man which makes his reactions interesting but imparts a very detached feel to the narrative A plantation slave wandering Virginia in 1862 has some visceral sights to see but nothing really moves Cassius on a surface levelthings shift within him slowly and deeply which reflects admi

    PDF/EPUB David Fuller Å PDF/EPUB Sweetsmoke ePUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk sweetsmoke mobile, Sweetsmoke PDF/EPUBWith an abundance of excellent books about the Civil War south and slavery there is no need to read Sweetsmoke David Fuller's book is part murder mystery part description of plantation life and part war novel Unfortunately because it tries to to fulfill so many roles it fulfills none of them well By the time the murder mystery was finally solved I had become distracted by so many other plot lines that I no longer cared who the murderer was Additionally with the exception of the main character the slave Cassius the characters were undeveloped and uninteresting For instance I never could figure out the allure of Emoline the former slave murdered in the early chapters of the book I also found it completely unrealistic that Cassius a previously uneducated man could learn to read and write so well in such a short period

    PDF/EPUB David Fuller Å PDF/EPUB Sweetsmoke ePUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk sweetsmoke mobile, Sweetsmoke PDF/EPUBI initially waivered on whether or not to read this book The premise a slave investigating a murder was interesting but seemed like the kind of plot that could go really really wrong and become completely unrealistic I am so glad that I finally decided to read this book as I really enjoyed it I found myself interested both in the mystery and the characters themselves The liberties which the slave Cassius were granted made sense in the context of the storyline and the complex relationship between himself and Master Hoke The deceptions and backstabbing among the slaves and among the members of the household added depth to the story and the author's vivid descriptions brought it to life His depictions of the horrors both of slavery and of the battlefield were impressive and humbling
