This tale written in the 1850s is the only known novel by a female African Amer. slave, & quite possibly the first novel written by a black woman anywhere. A stirring story of “passing” & the adventures of a young slave as she makes her way to freedom. Tells of a self-educated young house slave who knows her life is limited by the brutalities of her society, but never suspects that the freedom of her plantation’s beautiful new mistress is also at risk, or that a devastating secret will force them both to flee from slave hunters with another powerful, determined enemy at their heels. The intro. includes the story of the search for the real Hannah Crafts, the biographical facts that laid the groundwork for her novel, & a look at other slave narratives of the time.
