The French Photographer. Sep 13, Sandi Dickenson rated it liked it. It took a chapter to relax my mind into this discourse. At first read, I was battling the book's purpose. It was written to present another view of slavery treatment by southern masters. Then I realized, in order to more fully understand the issues of the time, the author's was addressing plantation life style and genteel culture with the view of better meeting a "poor, helpless person's" needs.

The book opens with a southern plantation owner, highly confident in his "Butler Servant's slave's ability to convince the abolitionists that southern servants slaves are treated humanely, they have purpose and meaning in a fulfilling and productive occupation that their needs are generously met and they enjoy old age in a comfortably manner and setting.
He contrasts his ownership of his black butler with the North's "hired help" system in which a black women in poor health possibly TB has no means of economic support and together with her elderly mother, they now are homebound and face a lingering, cruel death together.
The Planter's Northern Bride
The book initially was an interesting read as the plantation owner discovers his love for the young daughter of an Editor who advocates for emancipation and together they work out the details of her marriage to him. She in turn becomes a passionate advocate for slavery servitude in the south which puports to alleviate the hired help problems found in the north. There is a comedic vein of sorts whereby the reader is asked to draw conclusions that are nonsensical.
The archaic writing style, while somewhat entertaining or thought provoking becomes quite tedious and the content approaches the ludicrous as supposedly content and well treated servants slaves are convinced by northeners using scripture that working for wages is a better alternative. Yet time and again, the author paints a picture of remorse so great, that they beg forgiveness, endure hardships in order to return to their masters and the more pleasant life of a slave.
This book may be suitable for readers who want to read pro-slavery discussions during the time period. To me, however, the argument for pro slavery is too sweetened and shallow for my taste.
The Planter's Northern Bride V1 - A Novel (1854) (Hardcover)
The book was far too wordy and should have been edited. Oct 24, Nigel Lepianka rated it did not like it. It's a pro-slavery novel; the one star is warranted only because it was composed of complete sentences and paragraphs. That said, I would totally teach this text because of the way it engages with the political rhetoric of the antebellum South and attempts to respond to the claims of Uncle Tom's Cabin.
It does throw out a smidge of thoughtful critique of the North, but it casts slavery as a dispute between whites North and South , threatens secession, and relies on a deterministic and racist vi It's a pro-slavery novel; the one star is warranted only because it was composed of complete sentences and paragraphs. It does throw out a smidge of thoughtful critique of the North, but it casts slavery as a dispute between whites North and South , threatens secession, and relies on a deterministic and racist view of the world to justify its institutions; par for the course for the South at the time, but nonetheless interesting to see from a Southerner's own words and not those echoed by the Northerners whose works are still read today Stowe, Douglass, etc.
Oct 01, Scott Smith rated it it was ok. What can you say about a pro-slavery book. Written in it's one of those "anti-tom" novels that came from the south that I'm writing a term paper on.

It is super cheesy and ridiculously sentimental. And obviously totally racist. Has an interesting image of a poor rebellious slave getting manipulated by the evil Northen abolitionist and begging to be taken back by his master, but being punished with his freedom. Still, I wouldn't say it's all totally false, life in the North sucked for freed What can you say about a pro-slavery book.

Still, I wouldn't say it's all totally false, life in the North sucked for freed slaves, but still. I give it two stars for being funny, and a shocking indication of how much things have changed. Aug 20, Kristi rated it liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This is an anti-abolitionist novel set within a sentimental marriage plot.
Henz removes the blame of responsibility from Southern slaveholders, and displaces it among those who instituted and operated the international slave trade. Furthermore, she positively contrasts the situation of slaves with the free poor of the North, and villainizes the Abolitionists who plot a slave revolt. Oct 18, Peter Templeton rated it it was ok. I've read a few of these anti-Tom books now, and though I don't have much time for the politics of them this is by far one of the strongest in terms of style.
Most are incompetent productions but this one is at least written by someone who can put a story together, and who understands how to create an effect. Mar 10, Michelle rated it did not like it Shelves: school.
