This richly imagined, unsentimental narrative traces more than three decades in the lives of a wealthy Charleston debutante who longs to break free from the strictures of her household and pursue a meaningful life; and the urban slave, Handful, who is placed in her charge as a child before finding courage and a sense of self. Inspired by the true story of early-nineteenth-century abolitionist and suffragist Sarah Grimké.
