good, but reading level might be too high for most high school students

Less of a short story collection than a loosely connected novel. I was immediately invested in the inhabitants of these stories, rooting for them in their trials and celebrating every good turn. I'm going to miss them.

This novel gives strong personalities to the enslaved people living with the pain of a harsh task master, an indifferent owner, loved ones sent away without warning, little knowledge of the surrounding country yet trusting in the rumors of a better place to live. Escaping was not as easy as just walking off.
