Review of The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins
|The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins (releasing May 21, 2019 from Harper)|
I was given a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
I received no additional compensation.
What began as a slave narrative of plantation injustices and abuses became the story of a smart and educated woman forced to perform scientific experiments on others while being a subject herself before she is given to another scientist to watch over (and report back to him about) his wife.
The Confessions of Frannie Langton is a mix of science, slavery, and societal expectations with a sweet thread of a love story woven in. I definitely recommend this one!
