changed their lives but will also have an impact on Benny and her student s lives as wellSlow to start this book packed a powerful punch The story is told in two timelines with the Lost Friends ads placed in between These ads pack a powerful punch that resonates throughout the book BTW all the ads placed by freed slaves have been made into a book titled Last Seen Voices from Slavery s Lost FamiliesWingate did a great job building her plot and joining the two story lines They are moving and powerful I found this book to be captivating thought provoking and emotionally moving I loved books that not only teach me something but affect me emotionally as well Fans of Wingate and Historical fiction will find this book appealing Thank ou to Random House Publishing Group Ballantine and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions are my own NOW AVAILABLEThis is a wonderful story based on true facts and records i felt the true facts and records I felt the was a bit slow but this book is very much worth sticking to it It can t and shouldn t be rushed There is a lot of humanity and history here Each chapter is begun with an ad from the original Lost Friends newspaper columns This story takes place in post civil war Louisiana and Texas although the ads in the Lost Friends column will take us back The Routledge Companion to Free Will years earlier It s Louisiana in 1875 and we first meet Hanie Gossett standing behind a stockade log fence where slaves are being held during an auction to sell some of them She s aoung girl and watches as her family is taken from her one by one Her mama told her never to forget her family she had made fifteen tiny poke sacks hung with jute strings they stole out of the wagon Inside each bag went three blue glass beads off the string that Grandmama always kept special Circumstances all come together after the emancipation so that Hannie is able to escape Hannie is going to search for her family and the other sacks with beads She is not alone she has with her Lavinia Gossett daughter of the owners and a creole girl the illegitimate daughter named Juneau Jane These characters come together under really unusual and incredible circumstances that I will leave Myford Series 7 Lathe Manual: ML7, ML7-R, Super 7 you to discoverThey stumble across an old church which is papered inside with newspaper columns At first they think this is just a covering for the walls until they read the ads and understand that this is a history of many slaves lives While searching for her family Hannie also looks out for those she has found are missing and Juneau Jane adds names and ads to a book that she has created The other timeline is that of aoung inexperienced teacher Benny who is starting a new job as a teacher in an impoverished area of Louisiana where the school s curriculum has little to do with her students real life They are often absent because there are no parents to make sure they attend school and sometimes they are needed at home to watch ounger siblings Benny is smart enough to uickly discern that she has to find a different way to get through to these kids She talks about The Lost Friends newspaper columns Once she introduces them to the book and what it is all about they decide on a project to research and reenact one of their ancestors in a program to try to raise money for the schoolMiss Wingate has again written a captivating and intelligent historical fiction novel which teaches while it takes hold of the reader s heart I learned so much about the South post civil war and it made that history come alive for me with these charactersI think that these characters were believable and I found both storylines to be interesting In the author s notes she states that the idea for the book came to me in the most modern of ways via e mail The note came from a volunteer with the Historic New Orleans Collection she d been entering database information gleaned from advertisements well over a century old The goal of the project was to preserve the history of the Lost Friends column From this e mail and the author s imagination this novel of the Lost Friends column From this e mail and the author s imagination this novel bornI received an ARC of this novel from the publisher through EdelweissThis book is set to publish on April 7 202. Swamps lie the seemingly limitless frontiers of Texas and improbably hopeLouisiana 1987 For first ear teacher Benedetta Silva a subsidized job at a poor rural school seems like the ticket to canceling her hefty student debt until she lands in a tiny out of step Mississippi River town Augustine Louisiana seems suspicious of new ideas and new people and Benny can scarcely comprehend the lives of her poverty stricken students But amid the gnarled oaks and run down plantation homes lies the century old history of three oung women a long ago journey and a hidden book that could change everything. ,
Former slave now sharecropper and two women Lavinia the heiress to a run down plantation and her half sister Juneau Jane a mixed race child set out upon a journey to find their father to settle an inheritance meeting dangers along the way and hardship Hannie rekindles as they travel that uestion that plagues her constantly could my family that was torn from me and sold off be out there Hannie so desires connections just as the two half sisters do Hope dwells in the heart of Hannie and of course the sisters as well As they travel the book of lost friends takes on a great importance for it is in that book that people pour out their loss of family pining for the time when they can reunite with loved ones The people in the book pledge their anguish which is then printed in a paper distributed to churches far and wide and read aloud in churches Names are read lineages are given and perhaps some day families and loved ones will be reunitedThe other part of the book which alternates with the 1875 component deals with a teacher Benedetta Silva hoping to cancel her student debt by teaching in a run down poorly serviced school She is the teacher to a group of high school age disadvantaged children who see no value in learning She becomes discouraged disappointed and bereft as she combats apathy hopelessness and despair Bennie trips onto an idea a glimmer of something that might spur her recalcitrant students Can a project reconnecting the kids with the past of their town ignite something in them It s a risk but one Bennie feels in her heart is well worth takingConnections are drawn family is discovered and there is renewed interest understanding and love shared as the happenings of 1875 unite with those of 1987I recommend this book for the gentle telling the awakening to the horrible instances that happened to so many in our country s history and the part that history can and does play in the realization that remembrance brings so much into our learning of life Thank ou to Lisa Wingate Random House Ballantine Books and NetGalley for a copy of this wonderful book due out April 7 2020 The Book of Lost Friends has become my favorite historical novel and in fact one of my favorite books that I ve read The book includes actual ads that were published in Southern newspapers and read to black congregations by their preachers searching for relatives of former slaves The last time many of these people saw their families was in sale pens and auction Le druidisme au quotidien : Guide pratique et philosophique yards as they were being sold off to new owners one or two at a time dividing families forever with no way of ever finding each other again The words are so heartbreaking so heartfelt and some of the ads in the book even tell of family members that has been reunited through the adsI read this book with the Traveling Sisters specifically Mary Beth and Paige of the TS because others are still reading it and we discussed that all the brutality and cruelty of man is evident in a manner that doesn t stop us in our tracks By reading the words of the actual people who lived as slaves and went through being bought sold traded beaten etc all of it is so obvious but not gratuitous and also not so inour face God de vader en God de moeder you can t keep going It s real it happenedou feel the heartbreak of the people who are looking for their families hoping for news even if it s bad Such strong people white black Indian mixed being treated badly or treating each other badlyThe 1875 portion of the book follows former slave Hannie white Missy whose family had owned Hannie for her entire life and Juneau Jane Missy s illegitimate free born Creole half sister Missy and Juneau Jane s father has disappeared and the girls need to establish their claims to their inheritance before Missy s uncles can steal their inheritance from them When the two girls steal off on a dangerous journey that is a

of the story Sami et Julie CE1 Sami et Julie font des crpes young teacher Benedetta is tasked with teaching the kids of Augustine LA the poor kids that the rich side of town has neglected forgotten and expects to never amount to anything In fact these kids believe they will never amount to anything and have never even thought of trying to dig out of the hole of their poverty Benny is renting a house on the land that belongs to the former plantation of Missy and Juneau Jane s father and she discovers papers that show how these children have a past and a legacy to live up to and to rememberThe book starts very slowly but I think the built up and the background is worth the time it takes to show the link of the two timelines to bring things together If there was anything I d like from the book it would be that we got to follow Hannie Juneau Jane and Hannie s friend Gus into theears after the book ended I didn t want to leave these strong amazing people Hannie and Juneau Jane while fighting to stay alive also bring the Book of Lost Friends to all the people they meet And Deliciously Ella entre amis young Gus vowed to pass on what he learned from Hannie about her missing
