Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These true and dramatic stories of two nineteenth-century Brazilian women; one young and born a slave, the other old and from an illustrious planter family; show how each in her own way sought to exercise control over her life. The slave woman struggled to avoid an unwanted husband and the woman of privilege assumed a patriarch's role to endow a family of her former slaves with the means for a free life. Sandra Lauderdale Graham casts new light on larger meanings of slave and free, female and male, through these compact histories.

Book News Annotation:

In the first story, a young woman newly emancipated refuses to marry at her former owner's instruction. In the second, a wealthy matriarch tries to endow a family of her ex-slaves with resources for a free life. Lauderdale draws from legal and other documents to tell as much of the stories as can be known.
