    Hardcover ☆ Dream Country Epub µ dream pdf, country book, Dream Country KindleThis was so hard to read but also so important I think my critiques are just that I wanted time with the characters but that also would’ve been really painful There was also some historical context I didn’t understand Some characters were called white but really weren’t and some were called half caste I thought this was whiteblack when it was American BlackLiberian But yeah This was so heavy and so like lots of in depth ideas I had not considered combined with history I didn’t even know I think I’m mostly shaken that those in bondage could go on to commit the same atrocities to others It haunts me
