My Name is Ona Judge
Suzette D. Harrison
New Hampshire, 1796. “My name is Ona Judge, and I escaped from the household of the President of the United States. I was the favored maid of George and Martha Washington, but they deemed me a slave and thought me property, and I hear ten dollars is offered as reward for my capture. Now I must write the truth that I have lived, and tell my story…”
An absolutely gripping work of historical and contemporary fiction rolled into one dual timeline narrative!
Speechless on so many levels! Just WOW! Harrison is a MASTER storyteller! The intermingling of the two women’s lives is beautifully done, especially at the end. There was no way to do this review any justice.
