On November 26, 2012, Sharon and Richard will celebrate 47 years of marriage. Their marriage produced three sons. Their youngest son, Andrew died from cancer on April 15, 1993.

Though targeted for middle-schoolers, Louisa is a truly inspiring story for people of all ages. Its author, Richard Emmel, has spent more than 40 years in public education and certainly knows how to instruct children using the written word. You'll come away from this story with an informed understanding of what it was like to live during the colonial American period. Louisa's phenomenal accomplishments in her life will inspire you to strive for your own lofty goals in life. Her interaction with such famous American heroes as George Washington, John Hancock, and John Adams will both enlighten and encourage you. Get ready for a truly heartwarming experience as you read this intriguing story.

By K. Vetrano on January 25, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a very educational book which gives a lot of insight into the lives of slaves back in the time of slavery. I always new that the slaves were terribly mistreated but I didn't think it was so bad.

This would make an excellent resource for a classroom or homeschool family.

This is a must read book for Black History month.
