Moody Publishers Review + Giveaway {pt. 2}!!



Yes, this is LONG overdue part 2 to Moody Publishers is really here!  Thank you very much for your patience, readers!
                             *****
Freedom's Pen tells the story of Phillis Wheatley, a slave who was set free and became a very expressive author and poet in colonial America.  Like The Captive Princess has 12 chapters and is softcover.  I just love the cover; it really fits the time period!

The book begins with Phillis as a young girl living in Gambia, Africa in the year 1761.  (She was orginally called Janxa, but her name was later changed to Phillis- the name of the ship she came to America on.)  She is kidnapped by slave traders, brought to Boston, and bought at an auction by the Wheatleys (hence, her last name).  She is taught by Mary Wheatley, and learns to write amazing poetry.  But Phillis learns something far greater than academics: she learns of the freedom and love Jesus offers to those who personally know Him which is reflected in her writings. 

I love Wendy Lawton's descriptiveness in her writing.  Even her chapter titles are lovely as well as interesting.  For instance, chapter 11 is entitled "Elegies of Hope."  Beautiful!
