Reviews - What do customers think about No Choice But Freedom: A Novel of Treachery and Triumph in Colonial America?
No Choice But Freedom Nov 21, 2006
No Choice But Freedom is a wonderful historical piece dealing with the issues of slavery and a women's right to voice her opinion on the subject during a time when it was not appropriate to do so. A well-to-do English woman makes a journey by ship to colonial America to be with her husband, who is unfaithful and has his own reasons for the marriage. She soon finds that life in the colonies is not what she is used to in England, but prevails when faced with the unexpected challenges. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Historical Fiction, Women's Literature, or Slavery in early America.
