This was a nice leisurely historical fiction. It was not something that I would normally pick up given the description was "gone with the wind meets brokeback mountain." However, I was glad I didn't judge a book by its cover. The story did not solely focus on the two male slaves who were in love, but it was very descriptive and followed all the characters. I could see it turn into a made-for-tv movie. I would have liked to see more about the love story between the male and female lead who were in love. While it was not a gripping page turner, this is a nice book to intersperse into your reading if you are into reading more than one book at once.
I liked 'Little Women' as a whole, but I found certain parts (for example, the chapter devoted to Demi and Daisy) excruciating boring. I didn't know until I started reading this book that it had a religious undertone and was meant to be sort of a guide book for young, Christian ladies. I think the advice and morals are still valuable today and I wished I had read 'Little Women' sooner.
