  • 699

Isabell Paige, a comely young colored girl, was saved at the slave auction by a kind and decent plantation owner. Life would be different on the Hillsdale Plantation. She would learn to read and write and become a good housekeeper and seamstress—traits that would help her care for the children of a widowed Christian man she would later work for. Many of the incidents in this story are based on actual happenings. (90pp. illus. Masthof Press, 2013.)
