Still thinking about this offering from the amazing Dolen Perkins-Valdez. She specifically chose the title for its connotations of exact what happened to these women who were wrongfully considered property. This novel exposes wrongs of a whole new nature by presenting an account of an actual resort where men paraded these slaves as mistresses.
The protagonist, Lizzie, naively believes her owner is different and cares for their children.
What could possibly go wrong?
