Most of the books included are fabulous read-alouds, read-alones, and natural choices for Guided Reading, Literature Circles, or Book Clubs.

Vom Kampf einer Frau um Freiheit – mit Leichtigkeit und Leidenschaft erzählt Jamaika, Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Sie war einst Haussklavin auf der Zuckerplantage Amity und hat bewegte Zeiten hinter sich. Nun, viele Jahre nachdem sich ihre Brüder und Schwestern die Freiheit mit Blut erkauften, drängt es die inzwischen betagte Miss July ihrem Sohn, einem angesehenen Verleger, die Geschichte ihres Lebens zu offenbaren – und ihm zu erklären, warum sie gezwungen war, ihn als Säugling auf den Stufen einer Pfarrei auszusetzen. So beginnt sie mit großer Lust am Fabulieren von jener Zeit zu erzählen, als sie die rechte Hand der Missus auf der Plantage war. Bis der junge Goodwin seine Arbeit als Aufseher aufnahm und für July ein Leben unter anderen Vorzeichen anfing. Die unvergessliche Geschichte einer Emanzipation und zugleich ein erschütternder Bericht über die letzten Tage der Sklaverei, dargeboten von einer Ich-Erzählerin, die uns aufschreien lässt gegen die Unmenschlichkeit, die uns aber immer auch mit ihrem Lachen versöhnt. Denn sie führt uns vor Augen, welche Kräfte der Glaube an Veränderung wecken kann, welche Kraft die Freiheit birgt.
