A beautiful book about Molly Bannaky, a woman who married a slave and became Benjamin Banneker's grandmother.After escaping death on the gallows and working for seven years as an indentured servant, Molly Walsh staked her claim to a piece of land in Maryland, and there she fell in love with an African slave. How rare it was for a woman to claim her own land. Even rarer was for her to marry a slave. Yet Molly persevered and prospered, and with her new husband, Bannaky, she turned a one-room cabin in the wilderness into a thriving one-hundred-acre farm. One day she had the pleasure of writing her new grandson's name in her cherished Bible: Benjamin Banneker . . .
