Endurance, Chattel Slavery, Womanhood, Faithfulness, and History
13 years +
Jasmine Holmes shares stories about the lives of 10 inspirational Black women. While many of the women featured in this book may be unknown to us and forgotten from our history texts, these women lived faithfully and influentially during a time filled with injustice.
“They worked to change laws, built schools, spoke to thousands, and shared the Gospel all around the world”.
This biographical novel is about truth-telling, women who had hope amongst oppression, and a call to learn from extraordinarily faithful Black women who have gone before us.
This book is best suited for mature teens due to the distressing violence and abuse against enslaved women. A ‘Young Readers’ edition is avaiable and may be appropriate for sensitive teens. You can download the ‘Young Readers’ Book Club Guide here.
