Item description for Janie's Freedom: African Americans in the Aftermath of Civil War (Sisters in Time) by Callie Smith Grant...

Eleven-year-old Janie doesn't know what to do when she is told she is free to leave her Georgia plantation after the Civl War.

Publishers Description
Time Period:  1867  Eleven-year-old Janie finds herself in a quandary. The War Between the States is now over, and Miss Laura, widowed mistress of Rubyhill Plantation, has told Rubyhill's former slaves they're welcome to stay or free to leave. But for Janie, where should she go? There are still dangers in the South, and so many unknowns in the North-and moving may eliminate any chance of ever finding her mother. Using actual historical events to tell the poignant story of a newly-liberated young slave girl, Janie's Freedom is an excellent read for eight- to twelve-year-old girls, teaching American history and the Christian faith at the same time.

Reviews - What do customers think about Janie's Freedom: African Americans in the Aftermath of Civil War (Sisters in Time)?

American history and Christian principles  Apr 24, 2007
Reviewed by Natalie Novakowski (age 9) for Reader Views (4/07)

This is a story about an African American girl named Janie. She is 11-years-old. The Civil War is over and Miss Laura tells the slaves at Rubyhill Plantation that they can stay or are free to leave.

Janie doesn't know what to do, where she should go to. She knows that the South is still dangerous and she doesn't know much about the North. If she moves up North, she knows she may lose the chance of finding her mother.

"Janie's Freedom" has a lot of American history in it. I enjoyed reading about the history. I also enjoyed reading about Janie and the things she did. This book has a lot of Christian principles too. I would like to read more books like this.
