Book Review: My Thoughts―The Cost of Hope ~ G.S. Carr

40195163In G.S. Carr’s The Cost of Hope, a historical interracial novel (2018) is a story of the love of a woman who was sold into slavery and loved by a man who could not in those times have her as his wife. The author told her story very well; this is clean romance story; however, it does have its elements of darkness which speak of potential rape, rape, and abuse. Stories of this period especially for women of color are hard to read, it brings about the imagery of what happened to our ancestors so long ago. This story had excellent protagonists in Vivian and Elizabeth; those would have been two people to throat punch.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Rating: 5
Recommend: Yes, only if the reader can get past the nature of the story.
Dates read: May 14-18, 2018
