The Letter Writer

The Letter Writer by Ann Rinaldi
Eleven-year-old Harriet Whitehead, who serves as the "letter writer" for her blind stepmother, is haunted by her unwitting role in Nat Turner's Rebellion, one of the bloodiest and most effective slave uprisings in the history of America. This title is one of the Great Episodes Series.

...a fast-paced, compelling story about the attitudes of Southern plantation owners toward their slaves.
