Sarah Grimké is not like other girls her age in 1803 Charleston, South Carolina. So when she is given her own personal slave girl, Hetty, for her 11th birthday, the institution of slavery becomes even more personal. Here begins the intertwined stories of Sarah and Hetty as they grow up together and struggle with the injustices and restrictions of their assigned lots in the 19th century South. This is an engrossing fictionalized story of one of the earliest American abolitionists and suffragists.
