Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tells the story of Hannah Crafts, a young slave working on a wealthy North Carolina plantation, who runs away in a bid for freedom up North.

Review:

"[A] valuable historical document that reveals the sad, humiliating, fearful, and painful lives of slaves....The fact that it offers a glimpse into a shameful part of American history by a voice never before heard makes for an unforgettable reading experience....It's inspiring, uplifting, and a must-read for all who ever wondered how slaves viewed the world around them." Sonia Chopra, BookReporter.com

Review:

"Crafts's style clearly owes much to other writings of the time. She borrows heavily from Gothic and sentimental novels, and adopts many of the characteristics of other contemporary slave narratives, but her prose nevertheless speaks powerfully of the degradations a slave in her position would have endured..." The Guardian (U.K.)
