"Blanton has accomplished what I think all writers of good historical fiction should. She has accurately portrayed a time in history with a real flare, serendipitously teaching her readers as she keeps them utterly captivated with her characters. Her descriptions of places and events are so vivid that it is easy to imagine being on the sugar plantation or sailing across the ocean."
