    One thought on “The Secret Life of Lucy Bosman”

    1. “The Secret Life of Lucy Bosman, by Rebekah L. Pierce,” was an AWESOME READ! I am giving it 5 STARS! I really don’t know how to express how awesome the story is without giving away the story itself. I can only stress that it is a must read. The story is very well written, character development, plot and all that goes into writing a story was well done. I could see Lucy and the other characters as if I was watching a movie. The history that’s been included in this story was very interesti [...]

    2. Lucy Bosman is a mulatto woman who poses as a white woman in the 1860s just before the Civil War. Her husband died fighting for the freedom of the blacks. They were given their freedom papers by his father the plantation owner in Tennessee.

    3. Can't wait for the next oneDespite a few rough spots this is a good first book. At least I hope it was the first. The only concern I have is the uneven writing. Most of the book is spent reinforcing how dangerous it would be if Lucy's secret were to be revealed. Then the character seems to take a lot of unnecessary risks by speaking out against Sarah's beliefs.

    4. A powerful and dramatic historical romance, filled with loss, hope, and love. The plot is compelling and the characters are nicely fleshed out. A fine read that sets up what I hope will be another book nicely.

    5. Review The Secret Life Of Lucy Bosman is a must ready ! It is a story of triumph , while bringing a beautiful light to the strength of a free slave woman unlike any of the slave stories that would dare place a salve woman In the light of a very prestigious outlook on life as opposed to a downtrodden salve woman .Rebekah L. Pierce has created a Phenomenal character that our forefather would be very proud!! You will laugh , cry ,fall in love , you will be angry and you will be on the edge of your [...]

    6. Enjoyed the bookI choose five star ,it was a page turnerI had to fine out if they would discover Lucy Secret also was hoping Samuel would have came back from the war and Sarah karma

    7. Wonderful BookWonderful book. I only wish it had not ended. I would love to read about Lucy and Charlie's adventures out west. Incredible writing. Thank you.

    8. pros: great story, easy read, likeable characters, cons: grammer and spelling errors, confusing at times with with change of characters
