Burg, Ann E., Unbound: A Novel in Verse.

Grace’s mamma makes her promise to “keep her eyes down and her mouth closed” when she leaves their slave cabin to work at the big house. Grace cannot remain silent as she witnesses the cruel treatment of slaves at the hands of a heartless missus and master.  Her spoken thoughts trigger a series of events which force Grace to lead her family through the Great Dismal Swamp in search of freedom.

    I like the fact that this book is written in poems. The authors style is different than most books, but very clear.
