    MOBI Slave and Sister Epub ↠ Slave and PDF or æ american fiction.co æ slave ebok, sister mobile, Slave and pdf, Slave and Sister KindleSlavery from the owners point of viewThis book is a mess The author has researched Jewish chattel slave owners in the US but does not seem to have studied slavery from the pov of the enslavedThe characters don't behave in realistic ways This feels like white guilt wrote a book

    MOBI Slave and Sister Epub ↠ Slave and PDF or æ american fiction.co æ slave ebok, sister mobile, Slave and pdf, Slave and Sister KindleSister of Mine explores a rarely discussed part of the Antebellum South the Jewish community many of whom were wealthy slaveholders Through the lives of Adelaide Mannheim and her sister Rachel who is her slave we get an intimate look at slavery's destructiveness Both women are severely limited by society's laws and expectations We see the pervasive cognitive dissonance of Adelaide's friends and family who recite the Jewish prayers and remembrances of when the Jews were slaves in Egypt and when they were discriminated against in Europe and yet are able to justify the slaves they own that provide their wealth and status Waldfogel shows a deft hand with both description and dialogue as she explores the unhealthy intimacy and ineuality between masters and their slaves that create complex painful and at times loving relationshipsNote Book provided by Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    MOBI Slave and Sister Epub ↠ Slave and PDF or æ american fiction.co æ slave ebok, sister mobile, Slave and pdf, Slave and Sister KindleIt's not perfect but I'm giving it five because of how interesting I found itAlso posted HEREThis is an epic sort of story one that seemed to take me a while to read but one I’m very glad I did Dealing with slavery and sisterhood in the lead up and duration of the US Civil War in the mid nineteenth century Sister of Mine is told from the perspective of two young Southern women one the daughter of a rich Jewish landowner in Georgia and the other her slave and secret half sisterIf you’re not from the United States you might want to familiarise yourself with the basics of the war and where the various states are positioned before starting – if you want to get the most out of the bookI can’t tell you if every detail of the history is correct but there does seem to be a staggering amount of research

    MOBI Slave and Sister Epub ↠ Slave and PDF or æ american fiction.co æ slave ebok, sister mobile, Slave and pdf, Slave and Sister KindleThe first half of this book was great It really captured the complexity of the South during slavery and the relationships between slaves mixed slaves and their white masters However then the white mistress's Adelaide half black sister Rachel falls in love with her master and starts a relationship with him The idea that she was actually in love with him and allowed the relationship to go as it did seemed so against her earlier character Then the fact that the sisters were able to come to a positive understanding about their situation while the master was away at war seemed so unlikely and so rapid that I just couldn't believe it
