Cane River by Lalita Tademy

Cane River paints a family portrait with strokes of the strength of women, the power of family, and the determination of the human spirit to be free in the lives of four unforgettable women.  As these four women struggle through slavery as well as freedom, they are faced with the sexual advances of white men, loneliness, societal restrictions, prejudice, and a desire to provide their children more opportunity than they had.  As Tademy envelops you in their lives, she brings humanity to history.
