Review – Sweetsmoke by David Fuller

August 28, 2008

Do you delve into murder mysteries?  Then I highly suspect you will devour Sweetsmoke.

Do you desire love stories?  Sweetsmoke should thoroughly satisfy your cravings.

Do you revere historical fiction?  Your journey though Sweetsmoke is sure to be enlightening.

Screenwriter David Fuller’s first novel, Sweetsmoke, combines all three of those genres by brilliantly entwining intrigue, romance and fact.

Sweetsmoke by David Fuller

We navigate the story by following the personal agenda of Cassius, enslaved but favored by his Virginia master Hoke.  His soulful narrative makes twists and turns much more resembling the undercover paths of the Underground Railroad than the long straight tracks that the troop trains travel of the time.

Fuller carries us along with a story of courage, faith and devotion that honors the lives of slaves most often left unrecorded.   Sweetsmoke provides us with a safe passage through the uncertainty doubt and fear.

Newly released by Hyperion, you can may read more reviews and ratings for Sweetsmoke on LibraryThing or find it in a library near you.

    Thanks for the endorsement! My preview copy from LibraryThing is resting on my night stand right now – I’m only a few page into it.
