Yellow Crocus - Laila Ibrahim

Can you tell I'm on a historical fiction kick?

 

I previewed this book about two weeks ago and had a hard time putting it down to finish what I was currently reading.

 

This pre- civil war novel that takes place in Virginia. A slave, Mattie, is taken away from her newborn son as well as her home  to serve as a wet nurse for the plantation owners' daughter Elizabeth. This is the story of Mattie and Elizabeth's relationship and how it affects Elizabeth when she grows up.
