Wolf by the Ears

Ann Rinaldi

Harriet Hemings has always been happy in the comfortable, protected world that is Monticello. She’s been well treated there; no one has ever called her a slave. But that is what she is, a slave of a man who wrote the Declaration of Independence. And there are rumors that she might be more than Thomas Jefferson’s slave -she might be his daughter.

Now Harriet has to make a choice—to run to freedom or to stay. If she stays, she’ll remain a slave. But how can she choose freedom, if it means leaving behind her family, her race, and the only home she ‘s ever known.
