Reviews for Dear America: I Thought My Soul Would Rise and Fly
RatingComments
5This is a beautiful book for many reasons, all of which are more complex than the basic plot. The overall theme of the story is huge: what it means for anyone to be free. Historically, Patsy's tale explains that once the Civil War was over, slaves didn't necessarily just walk off the plantations. They didn't always know where to go or what to do. Patsy wants no part of her name to be associated with the misery of the Davis Plantation, so she ponders throughout the book what a suitable replacement will be. She is, after all, free to do that.
