To be released in October 2017 with illustrations by Lauren Castillo. Christy Ottaviano Books/Henry Holt/Macmillan, publisher.
"Herkert's elegant prose and Castillo's stunning illustrations team up for a magnificent model of what a picture book can be...A stunner--radiant even." Kirkus starred review
While reading this book, I was able to feel as if I not only lived there, but I could also feel the pain and joy of Harriet Powers' thru her journey. Truly a wonderful book and illustrations. This book has 3 different ways to read this story, all rolled up in one book. I truly love it
