"Negros are born to be property they are far too inferior to be worth of being friends or family to anyone in the white race" Jesse would constantly preach this to his son James. James's best friend was Lily. Lily, a black woman bought in an auction by Jesse Adams was brought to his residence to work as a slave when she was just a little girl. Over time James and Lily developed a great friendship, they were of the same age and had so much in common. They would play together, go fishing and do all kids stuff together. They did all this in secret because it was wrong for a master's son to be friends with a slave. Sadly, they were discovered by Jesse when James was found helping Lily mop the floor so she could finish up her chores and they would go out to play. Lily was really punished for that as she was accused of forcing James to work. James knew what he had to do. He decided to cut off from Lily completely in order to avoid such an occurrence. Lily was devastated, her only friend in the world shut off from her living her feeling alone all over again since being snatched away from her mother.

The book is well edited. It contains some erotic sexual content in a few chapters hence not suitable for kids below eighteen years. There are no editorial error making the book a smooth read. It's is breathtaking with both happy and sad twists of black people lives during the slavery era.
