Description:

An ALA Award-winning Author As part of the staff of George and Martha Washington, Oney is referred to as a servant, not a slave, and when she becomes Martha's personal servant her status in the household is second to none. But, slowly, Oney realizes that -- regardless of what they call it -- it's still slavery, and she must make a choice. Told with immense power and compassion, this is the extraordinary true story of one young woman's struggle to take what is rightfully hers. 580L (AR) For ages 12 and up

Young adult author Ann Rinaldi was born in New York City on August 27, 1934. After high school, she became a secretary in the business world. She got married in 1960 and stopped working, but after having two children she decided to try writing. In 1969, she wrote a weekly column in the Somerset Messenger Gazette and in 1970 she wrote two columns a week for the Trentonian, which eventually led to her writing features and soft new stories. She published her first novel Term Paper in 1979, but was ultimately drawn to writing historical fiction when her son became involved in reenactments while he was in high school. Her first historical fiction novel was Time Enough for Drums. She also writes for the Dear America series. She currently lives in Somerville, New Jersey with her husband.
