    Epub Margaret Walker º º Jubilee PDF ê jubilee epub, Jubilee PDFRobin Miles a graduate of the Yale School of Drama brought this audiobook to life with her extraordinary voice and ability to render different characters At almost 500 pages ‘Jubilee’ by Margaret Walker would have been much challenging to read had it not been for the voice of Miles turning Vyry into a three dimensional character with hopes fears and dreams that I could easily identify with The comfort of a safe home the luxury of a predictable day a good education for her children and knowing that at nighttime those in her immediate family would be tucked safely into bed These are all things many of us take for granted As the story begins Vyry’s mother lays dying Hetta is twenty nine years old and she has given birth to fifteen children The master of their plantation in Georgia John Dutton is Vyry’s father a miluetoast person who lets his wife run the pla

    Epub Margaret Walker º º Jubilee PDF ê jubilee epub, Jubilee PDFBy now I've read plenty of books set in antebellum south and although this novel does not score as high as kindred or incidents in the life of a slave girl it's still fairly good It's the only one that I've read which captures the antebellum era civil war and the reconstruction period My favourite aspect of the novel was the portrayal of the reconstruction era The reconstruction period was truly a period of lost hopes and dreams It seemed as if United States may have been able to achieve euality for the newly freed slaves especially with the radical republicans in power but hatred and intolerance was too powerful and too much of a barrier I always found the reconstruction period to be uite a tragic per
