Review for Elizabeth’s Field

The following is the latest review for  “Elizabeth’s Field” that appears on  Written by Cynthia Graae, it is as follows:

Elizabeth’s Field by Barbara Lockhart is absolutely amazing — beautifully written (poetic, articulate), beautifully crafted (structure of the novel), incredible understanding of human behavior — the moral strengths and failures, and human foibles.  It evokes a sense of place — Dorchester County, Maryland, Harriet Tubman’s home.  It is a page-turner, too.  It is about slaves, free blacks, slave owners, a female black landowner, a kidnapped free black, and the fears of free blacks that they will be stolen into slavery, which is a timely subject in the light of the movie, “Twelve Years a Slave.”
