An African-American Little Women
When reading the First Look for "The Davenports," my first thought was that it was a African-American "Little Women," one of my all-time favorite books. Then I discovered that this story is based on lost history--MY FAVORITE. I love to read books liek that because it is an easy way to learn more about the world and especially about the past. I adore American history! I can already see myself curled in my chair, lost in the early 1900s, learning about people, places and things that had never crossed my mind. I sure hope you pick ME!
