    In his introduction to this book, Carl Waters explains how Harriet Beecher Stowe’s ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’ provided the starting point for what will be a four book series told from the point of view of the slaves. It’s an interesting and thoughtful introduction, and while I’d have to read all four books to see how well Mr Waters achieves his objective, ‘Burning Uncle Tom’s Cabin’ is a great start. I recommend it.

    The Kindle Book Review

    Waters aims to find the story still alive behind the outdated original novel. Unlike the original, this book does not need to rely on the persuasion of white characters (or readers) of the essential equality of mankind. It tells a tense and nerve-wracking story of brutality and escape.

    Although the subject is a sensitive one which brings up lots of tender emotions, I think the book is well-written; the characters practically leap off the page trying to tell their story. The story being told is well-developed, and I was very impressed with the author’s determination to tell the story. I would recommend this book to everyone, and am eager to read more of this author’s works.
