In the days before the Civil War, there lived a Louisiana people unique in Southern history. Though descended from African slaves, they were also descended from the French and Spanish who enslaved them. Called the Free People of Color, this dazzling historical novel chronicles the lives of four of them—men and women caught perilously between the worlds of master and slave, privilege and oppression, passion and pain.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/19/2014

    " My absolute least favorite of all her books that I have read. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen. Throughout the whole book I could not find a plot. It was just a bunch of rambling. The only reason I finished it was because I have to finish every book that I start, otherwise I would have quit halfway through. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Val | 2/10/2014

    " Couldn't get into this book at all. Lacked momentum. Seemed to drag. Tried to muddle through a couple of times, but found it abysmal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Needleroozer | 1/30/2014

    " This book is not about vampires or witches. It is about the free people of color in New Orleans in prior to the Civil War. It is a lushly written book, kind of like an advanced romance novel. I read it again recently and liked it as easy reading before bedtime. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jack | 1/23/2014

    " Lame. Total disappointment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri Hoots | 1/22/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Wildmon | 1/19/2014

    " A wonderful look into the complex interracial history of New Orleans, and a dramatic story of how it's families survived the fall out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 1/18/2014

    " A very good representation of her non-supernatural themes. She continues to offer rich, sensual worlds in which she envelops her readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 C.j. Johnson | 1/5/2014

    " One of my favorite books of all time! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rowena | 12/25/2013

    " just re-read. Still awesome. "

    " Liked her other stuff better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Ratkowski | 8/17/2013

    " It took me a few chapters to get into this book, but once I did it was hard to put down. Ann Rice's writing is so descriptive that I could feel the heat and humidity of New Orleans and picture everything in complete detail. The ending catches you by suprise.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 8/17/2013

    " I believe that this is the best book that Anne Rice has written. "

    " The first to get me hooked on Vampires! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Catherine | 5/6/2013

    " My favorite Anne Rice book. It has nothing to do with vampires.... but everything to do with New Orleans in a time before the Civil Way when affluent black families had a place in society. Excellent historical novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher Zacher | 12/4/2012

    " Love this book, was when Anne Rice was a gret writer. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meirav Rath | 10/27/2012

    " I dropped this book out of my hand after the first couple of chapters; it's a collection of unauthentic Mary Janes of the worst kind. Please, spare yourselves the waste of energy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele Zurlo | 8/27/2012

    " Easily one of my favorite reads, though the 1st 50 pages is a bit slow. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 mart | 6/25/2012

    " Interesting plot but too much verbal swooning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madia Cullen | 6/10/2012

    " One of the best books written "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari Ramadorai | 5/16/2012

    " I come back to this book every 6 years or so because it is well written with some historical accuracy. Tortured anti-hero and tragedy make it worthwhile, even only once. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anissa Rajala | 10/23/2011

    " I don't know. It was interesting, but I got bored after awhile. There didn't seem to be a big enough hook for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacey | 8/6/2011

    " This is a wonderful and historically accurate novel. I did my master's thesis on this and Faulkner's Absolum,Absolum. As always the writing is rich and sensuos. A true master of southern literary writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher | 4/26/2011

    " GREAT book.
    I think I look more forward to Anne Rice when she writes a fictional novel about historical characters or groups of people than I do to her Vampire and Witches series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angie | 3/10/2011

    " God, I love her. This keeps old-world New Orleans (my favorite city) alive in my head. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/8/2011

    " anne rice is probably my favorite author and this book provides an interesting perspective on mixed people of color who are free yet still enslaved at the same time. great book! "

    " Absolutely loved this book. It's one of the best examples of Rice weaving a great history lesson into a captivating story. Once again she encourages her readers to think, feel, experience and question their own human natures. "
