This book review and story I stumbled upon from the Princeton Univ. library. The book has lots of those disguised racial identity elements (i.e.: see: Jefferson, Thomas) that are now immensely popular. Also, it taps into something that I think is very much on the rebound---history. I think everyone's having a renewed love affair with history lately. We want to know who we came from, what was life like, what was the real truth, how bridges are made, who made them, and who made what. Reading the outline of the story feels as if you're opening the door to that forbidden world we cant WAIT to get our grubby little hands on.
