Cowslip A Slave (Paperback)
Cowslip was on the auction block. The year was 1861 and a war had begun, but it meant little to a frightened black girl still at the mercy of whites. An old slave at her former home had taught her magic spells to use against the cruel Master, who in his heartlessness had given Cowslip her name as a practical joke. But all those spells were no good to her now. The spunky and charming heroine of this fast-paced novel faces the adventures, humiliations and sorrows of her new life with a characteristic skeptism that gives her courage.
