4 stars overall / 4 stars audio narration
Switched at birth by a young slave woman who fears for her son’s life, a light-skinned infant changes place with the master’s white son.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and am reminded as I am each & every time I read Twain just how good he is. This is a tall tale, to say the least, but wholly entertaining and fun. I love the idea of just desserts, and clearly Twain did too, so the conclusion was a very satisfying end to a tale that was complex, exciting & fun.
