In the early 1800s, Sarah Grimké and her younger sister, Angelina, became the most infamous women in America. Kidd takes their story and eloquently weaves it together with their family slaves in Charleston, SC. At 11, Sarah is “given” a slave named Handful (Hetty). What develops, who is a slave to what, and how the women in this book work through their many issues is deeply moving and beautifully written.
RATING: * * * * Very, very good
