The Bell Rang

Out of stock
Each grueling day is the same for a slave girl and her family: the overseer rings the bell. Daddy gathers wood. Mama cooks. Her brother goes to work in the field. But one day, the bell rings and Ben is nowhere to be found.

Author’s note. Full-color illustrations were rendered in acrylics.
