Needless to say, Margaret's experience are horrific, but at the same time I didn't quite feel the horror and felt a bit on the outside looking in, and the ending was a bit too pat.

This novel, based on the landmark case of Prigg vs. Pennsylvania, is one of the best researched and well written books I've ever read. This is Margaret Morgan's story and her fight against all odds to hold her family together during the dark period of slavery in America. It should be required reading in every high school in the United States. It's power comes from the fact that Margaret was real and that the things portrayed in the novel really happened to her and thousand of others like her.

Margaret escaped a life of Slavery in Maryland when she fled to Pennsylvania in 1832. She lived there several years, got married and had children, before she and her children were abducted by Edward Prigg and returned to her "owner" Margaret Ashmore. Prigg later was brought up on charges of violating the Pennsylvania Person Liberty Law, which had been created to protect free blacks from kidnapping. However, the kidnapping ruling against Prigg was subsequently overturned by the Supreme Court on the grounds that the Pennsylvania Personal Liberty Law was unconstitutional. This sparked discussion of State's rights, which years later erupted in the Civil War.

I cried during the scene where Margaret's children were taken from her and SOLD; I suspect you will too. But don't take my word for it... BUY this book. It's really that good and is a book that should not be missed.

"All rise. Harford County trial docket number fifty-three, the case of Negro Margaret vs. Margaret Ashmore, petition for freedom. The Honorable William T. Archer presiding on this day, Wednesday, August 28, 1837."

All Different Kinds of Free is based on the story of Margaret Morgan and the case of Prigg v Pennsylvania. Margaret was a free woman, living in Pennsylvania with her husband and three children, until she and her children were kidnapped by bounty hunters and taken to Maryland to be returned to the widow of the man who had owned her family (he had freed them before he died). The man's widow has some financial issues and she's convinced by her daughter and son-in-law that she'll make a tidy profit selling Margaret and her children at auction.

"Fact is, he said, the Ashmores don't have papers saying they own me, and I don't have papers saying I'm free."

McCann takes this lesser known bit of history and weaves a tale of what might have happened to Margaret, interspersed with the POV of her husband Jerry fighting to find a way to get his family back and the legal proceedings arguing the legalities of *abducting* Margaret. Needless to say, Margaret's experience are horrific, but at the same time I didn't quite *feel* the horror and felt a bit on the outside looking in, and the ending was a bit too pat. The one thing that really struck me is that all those good white folks in Pennsylvania were darned outraged over someone from another state coming in and taking Margaret away and arguing the legalities of it all the way to the Supreme Court, but did one of them really care about getting Margaret and her children back? No...

The old expression, "turn'em every which way but loose," has a sardonic quality when applied to Jessica McCann's novel, "All Different Kinds of Free," the story of two families in slaveholding America. Margaret, the slave protagonist and her owner, Widow Ashmore straddle the issue with Ms. Ashmore's slave paramour, Jim Green, and Margaret's family who have been killed, falsely enslaved, and planning escapes. Opposing those kindly forces, each of whom has been trapped in the "system" (including their imprisonment in their ways of thinking), is the villain Ed Prigg an evil bounty hunter who makes other sadistic lash-wielding monsters seem tame.

As the story whip lashes back and forth, we're privileged to see the vacillation of Mrs. Ashmore who violates her dying husband's will to emancipate his slaves; Jim, who accepts his bondage as benignly as any Uncle Tom; Margaret who can never stop grieving the loss of her family, husband, children, and freedom, when she is now considered simply breeding stock for the cruel slave overseer, and for the mindset of those black and white people locked into the south's "peculiar institution." Perhaps the most shocking aspect of the book is the Pennsylvania court's legally turning its head from the outrageous kidnapping by Ed Prigg, the sadistic bounty hunter who steals Margaret and her children from the free state of Pennsylvania to take them south for sale.

"All Different Kinds of Free" is guaranteed to worm its way into your head and heart and force you to think of an old American problem in ways you've never considered before. And, the notions turning around will stay there for many a day in the future, causing you to turn the ideas around and around in your mind. If you want a fresh look at an old problem, "All Different Kinds of Free" is a must read. You'll be glad you accepted the challenge

This story is about a slave who was born free, to be forced back into the life of slavery. It kept the readers interest, with likely tales of plantation life, and only a small part of a slaves life...just a peek into some of what it must have been like.

Wonderful book that weaves fiction and history. I could not put this down, and it brought tears to my eyes more than once. It's a dark time in American History that should not be forgotten. The story is told in such a captivating way, and I appreciate that the author includes the facts at the end, so as to be very clear about what is fact and what is fiction. Wonderful book.
