Hang a Thousand Trees with Ribbons This historical novel delves behind the extraordinary facts of Phillis Wheatley's life - the Senegalese girl was kidnapped into slavery at the age of 7, sold to a wealthy Boston family, given access to education, encouraged to develop her talent for poetry and to travel to England where her work was published - to unfold a gripping and tragic story which explores the ambivalences of her period of fame.
