Moments after Lisbeth is born, she’s taken from her mother and handed over to an enslaved wet nurse, Mattie, a young mother separated from her own infant son in order to care for her tiny charge. Thus begins an intense relationship that will shape both of their lives for decades to come. Though Lisbeth leads a life of privilege, she finds nothing but loneliness in the company of her overwhelmed mother and her distant, slave-owning father.
Beautiful southern historical fiction

I loved this book. It was made all the more special by the fabulous narrator. At times I cried for the pain of the former lifestyle of slavery. But the love between two beautiful souls transcended and my tears of joy in the last two chapters will make this book one of my favorites forever.
