Although this book is for 8 - 11 year olds, and can be read as a story, it is factual and interestingly written and will appeal to all ages. As an artist, I discovered a picture of her bible quilt and wanted to find out more about Harriet Powers. This book has told me so much about her life, her family and her wonderful faith, the inspiration of her beautifully stitched quilts, which are personal and historical records. Whether you are an artist, student or anyone interested in sewing or slavery, I am sure this will have great appeal.
