Another YA novel I finished recently is The Gospel Truth, by Caroline Pignat from Red Deer Press. A marvellous read. A marvellous write. Set in Virginia in 1858 five people recount this story of slavery on a tobacco plantation: two slaves, a slave master, his daughter and a Canadian doctor who works to free slaves. It is a simple story beautifully and compellingly told. I could not put it down. Absolutely five stars. Kudos to Red Deer Press and to Caroline Pignat.
