Publisher's Synopsis

This novel tells how on a visit with my father to a murder trial in Wilkes County, NC, at age eight, I met Mammy and decided to learn more about slavery and later decided to write this novel. Included in this fictional novel are stories of slaves and freed slaves and the discrimination they faced even after they were freed. Mammy was my father's mammy from birth to age eight. The novel is principally about Mammy and her family as told to me by her son, and includes the lives and experiences of both slaves and freed slaves. It is a story of love, hate, romance, and humor. Mammy is considered by some a racial term, but to my father it was considered a term of endearment.
