A historical fiction novel based around the Grimke Sisters of South Carolina in the 1800s. Sarah Grinke and her appointed slave Handful battle the same issues, but from different perspectives.

Sarah is trapped by her family and their way of life, and Handful is trapped by slavery. Eventually, Sarah and her sister Angelina become the voice of the fight against slavery, as well as becoming womens’ rights advocates.

It was interesting how these two issues were blended together. A very enjoyable read.
