it was amazing

This book is an eye-opening account of Phoebe, a young black slave in New York City, during the time of the war with Spain. I had no idea there was fear of a "great Negro plot" in New York at this time and that slavery was such a difficult issue in the north. The mob mentality that existed at this time resulted in the tragic death of more innocent people than perished in the Salem witch trials.
