Hang a Thousand Trees with Ribbons
Sep 21, 2008
Recommended for: anyone who loves historical fiction and strong women main characters!
Read this book a while ago but I had to add it to my books. Ann Rinaldi is hands-down my favorite historical fiction writer!! This book was fantastic because it introduces the reader to Phillis Wheatley, a woman who played an important role during the time period of the American Revolution. The fact that she was a woman, a slave, very well educated, could read and write Latin, wrote poetry, traveled to England to meet royalty, and had Benjamin Franklin tell her to never leave England, because he said, "Here you are free!" should be more than enough to make a reader want to find out more about her life!! Any book written by Ann Rinaldi will leave you wanting to know more about the characters!!
