This historical fiction book is an account of Mum Bett, an enslaved woman who sues for her freedom after the Revolutionary War, and wins. The strength of the book is also a weakness of the storytelling aspect of the book because the vast amount of historical descriptions are important, yet the amount of information serves to slow the action down, and to take away from the storytelling. This book would be useful in the classroom as an historic novel that can supply a more well-rounded approach when studying the Revolutionary War and slavery. ( )
