    One thought on “Freedom's Island”

    1. I really like this author, and I think this book was well written. It was just not my kind of story as it was mostly about the people preparing for, and fighting a battle. I'm sorry to say I lost interest. I will definitely look for her next novel though!!

    2. Freedom by deathThe War is over but the hatred is not. Massa can't stand the thought of blacks growing cotton in their own town and selling it to anyone but him. Sad to think what happens is based on truth

    3. InterestingThis book held my interest from the beginning. The description of the planning and the actual battle was so good that it was like watching it happening.

    4. First off, I loved Freedom's Island. Having said that, this was not an easy read. The indignities committed by one person or group on another person or group simply because she/he/they are different somehow should anger all of us with a soul or an ounce of goodness in our veins. And for such petty reasons: a nationality, a religion, a physical disease or mental illness, a gender, a race.Ambrose Byrd has been a soldier, first for the Union forces, and then for the US Army for about 20 years.

    5. In the hands of Sabra Waldfogel, little known facts about the South post Reconstruction burst into life and provide a window into minds of many different kinds of Southerners—black and white, Christian and Jewish, poor and wealthy. Freedom’s Island allows the reader to feel the pain of the post-Civil War era and the continuing conflict that simmers beyond the 1865 for more than a hundred years.Waldfogel’s mastery of dialogue brings the reader quickly into the mindset of the cast of charact [...]

    6. This is the second book I have read by this author and I am awed by the depth of her knowledge of Civil War and post Civil War history. Because of family problems it took me longer to read than usual. Otherwise I would have rad the entire book in one sitting. The characters are so real. I can hardly wait for her next book.

    7. I was so excited to get my hands on Sabra Waldfogel’s second novel – and it did not disappoint. It brought the same combination of fascinating history (based on little-known truth), suspense and action. It also showed a new and equally awesome side of the author. With this one, she proves she’s more than just a romance author – she’s got real breadth. Can’t wait for the next one!

    8. Awesome readAwesome book I wish if ambrose had marry And which one he had chosen and what becameOf their land
