This book deals with some pretty controversial issues, if sensitive to rape or slavery, this is not for you

This is my review of That Woman: Beating the odds in Colonial New York. I am not really into historical novels, slavery, or other pieces set in this time period. I find it dull and boring most of the time. This novel, written by Wayne Clark was okay. I still did not really care for the slavery slant, or the raping of this girl for two years. She finally does succeed in becoming free and goes on to become successful and able to put a plan of revenge together. New York comes off as a character itself, it is so interwoven throughout the story. I lived in New York for two years and found the environment extremely harsh and I did not care for the way the mentality seems to be a selfish one. I found the book overall to be one that I somewhat enjoyed yet not 100 percent.

Wayne is a Montreal based writer, editor and translator.
