NCLA Review - A young Muslim girl is captured in her native Gambia and taken to Boston, where she is sold as a slave. She is lucky enough to be bought by a kind Christian family, who teach her to speak, read and write in English. The powerful narrative of this fictionalized biography of Phyllis Wheatley provides an interesting look at the struggle for freedom in Boston in the years leading up to the American Revolution. Poems and letters by Wheatley are incorporated into the story, which includes her conversion to Christianity and her release to freedom. This inspirational story is appropriate for ages 8-12.
