Okay, this book is horrible! I'm sorry; maybe it was because I had to read it for a school assignment, and I wanted to read Uncle Tom's Cabin but didn't have the time, but I really could not stand it! How is it that in 1865 RIGHT AFTER the end of the Civil War and RIGHT AFTER slaves were freed that a FEMALE BLACK, (newly freed) could just walk away from her old mistress, make friends with a white woman, get a job, and not face any prejudice at all? (White man: Oh! It's just Tancy! Come on it, Tancy!) Also, maybe I'm naive, but how many slave masters slept with and impregnated TWO of their slaves? The only good part of this entire story is the child, Jemmy, and that's probably because he's actually based on a real-life character. This book is slow and choppy with unrealistic setting and characters.
The story line, although fiction, contains many facts I was taught before even reading this book. Information about 40 acres & a mule, life after slavery, and the typical abuse slaves had to endure would really open the minds of anyone OPEN to contemplating researching, or even try to understand the TRUE history of early African-American people. Great job Ms. Hurmence.
Tancy is an incredible book. All though it is fictional, the book is an excellent portrayal of the life of a slave girl during the civil war and her search for her long lost mother. I highly recommend this book to all teen-aged readers.
