Nature (Juvenile Fiction)
Set in 1833 Lexington, Kentucky, this historical coming-of-age novel for young readers features resonant themes and topics—slavery, abolition, racism, prejudice, class consciousness, a devastating epidemic, and deep personal loss—as its thirteen-year-old white female narrator fights injustice and uncertainty with integrity, love, and hope.
