Born into slavery in 1837, Harriet was both a gifted seamstress and a deeply religious person. Her legacy, two quilts depicting Bible stories and folklore, grew out of those strengths. Using Powers's own words, as well as historical accounts of the period, Lyons has pieced together this artist's experiences into an absorbing, detailed narrative.
