    " Very. Good. Book "

    " I thought this would be a really good book. The beginning rocked and the principal character, Ginnie/Mercer, was initially fascinating. But then the focus of the book seemed to switch to the Quick family, whose annoying and grouchy members I did not find interesting. "

    " I tried....too many characters and not enough explanations as to who is who.... "

    " I had attempted to read this book in the past and just couldn't get onto it. Better timing maybe but I am loving it. Great characters and dialogue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 5/4/2012

    " The story of a woman who escaped from slavery during the days of the underground railroad. Set in Philadelphia, which made it a more compelling read (the author is from philly). Good read, thought provoking treatment of a terrible time in our history. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yohsuke Kobayashi | 12/10/2011

    " The Price of a Child had a very inspiring message and i recommend this novel to anyone who is interested in the history of slavery. Reading this book really helps understanding the time period around this time. "
