This seminal autobiographical tale, believed to have been the first published by an African-American woman, describes the life and struggles of an orphaned mulatto. Part slave narrative and part sentimental novel, it recounts the heroine's exploitation, first by her employers and later by an opportunistic husband. Essential for students of African-American history and culture.
