This book is about Phillis Wheately and how she struggled throughout her life to share her poems and to publish them. But her master (she is a slave) and mistress help Phillis overcome many difficult obstacles like letting people know that just because she is black doesn't mean she can't write poems.
Phillis begins to learn more and more how important freedom is to her and how she doesn't like being a slave. She however, realizes that the master and mistress love Phillis just like a daughter. Now, the only problem is, how will Phillis get freedom without hurting her mistress or master?
