I really liked this. I enjoyed the dialect. The ending is very sweet though I can't believe Josiah would allow Adelaide to take the blame and punishment for him. Very well written and a great slice of America's unfortunate past. Good job!

Beautiful! I loved the negro spirituals - they grew out of a difficult time in history, perhaps that is why they are blessed with such feeling and longing for heaven. Good job.

I miss those old time spirtuals! They came from the very heart and soul; but it's also great to know that era is over. Great story - told well.

Good story, and so far the first that I've read that chose this approach. High marks for creativity.
