The moving diary of Clotee, a slave-girl in one of America’s notorious plantations. To her, freedom is just a word – but it’s the most important word in the world. “Freedom is one of the first words I teached myself to write. Down in the Quarters people pray for freedom – they sing ‘bout freedom, but to keep Mas’ Henley from knowin’ their true feelings, they call freedom ‘heaven’. Everybody’s mind is on freedom…” From the acclaimed My Story series of fictionalised diaries, this book is based upon the true recollections of Clotee Henley, a freed slave.
