Commentary from Classics customers: 

Elizabeth Lindsey: “One of the best books I’ve ever read.  Fantastic.”

Najah Masudi: “Definitely a good book!”

Carolyn Stetson: “Highly recommended.  Beautifully written; while reading it, I dreamed in the cadences of the prose.”

Monica Williams: “A multilayered, smart and compelling book that features characters–and a part of U.S. history–not often explored in literature.  Insightful.”
