About The Book
Tancy, a favored house slave on the Gaither plantation, loves to read even though she knows it’s forbidden. Whenever her mistress naps, the girl goes through letters and papers on the library table, reading whatever she can get her hands on. One day she discovers a baffling entry in one of Mr. Gaither’s old Day Books. “6/16/48 Lulu lying in. 6/17/48 Lulu delivered of Tancy. Both well.” Where is Lulu now? Tancy wonders. What became of her mother, once Tancy was born?
With Emancipation, and the end of the Civil War, Tancy is free to leave the plantation and search for her mother. Bravely she forges into the unknown world of freedom, for the first time earning wages for her work, spending her own money, and fending for herself. Eventually her new life takes Tancy to Shantytown, a village where former slaves live in ramshackle huts they’ve constructed themselves. There Tancy meets Sin, a bitter, eccentric old woman who shatters Tancy’s dreams of a warm reunion with her real mother.
