Publisher's Summary

From National Book Award finalist Susan Straight comes a haunting historical novel about a Louisiana slave girl's perilous journey to freedom.

Daughter of an African mother and a white father she never knew, Moinette is a house maid on a plantation south of New Orleans. At fourteen she is sold, separated from her mother without a chance to say goodbye.

Bright, imaginative and well aware of everything she risks, Moinette at once begins to prepare for an opportunity to escape. Inspired by a true story, A Million Nightingales portrays Moinette’s experience - and the treacherous world she must navigate - with uncommon richness, intricacy, and drama.

Bravo Robin Miles

I love this book! Robin Miles brought the Louisiana Bayou to life. I only wish they had given the French Creole definitions at the beginning of the book. This book is a must listen !
