Summary, etc.:
A tour-de-force from three-time National Book Award finalist Rita Williams-Garcia, this story of an antebellum plantation, and the enduring legacies of slavery upon every person who lives there, is essential reading for both teens and adults grappling with the long history of American racism.
1860, Louisiana. After serving as mistress of Le Petit Cottage for more than six decades, Madame Sylvie Guilbert has decided, in spite of her family's objections, to sit for a portrait. But there are other important stories to be told on the Guilbert plantation. Stories that span generations, from the big house to out in the fields, of routine horrors, secrets buried as deep as the family fortune, and the tangled bonds of descendants and enslaved.
