Her father and later her half-brother were her masters.  But family ties did not free her nor guarantee fair treatment. Sarah’s situation worsens, becoming so horrific that she fears for her life from her step-brother-master’s brutality. Sarah Kinney Lewis, born into slavery in 1790, finally escapes to Simcoe, Canada in 1822 with three of her children. Read Susan's Foodie Lit review of David Beasley's Sarah's Journey.

Strawberry-Asparagus Salad

A little savory and a little sweet—and very fast and delicious!


This is a great summer lunch or side for a dinner. And it’s perfect as school begins for busy parents and teachers!  Roast the asparagus the night before to save time and toss in the morning for a lunch, whether at home or at work.


Create the salad for a side dish with pasta primavera or pasta pesto—and the entire family will be treated to a fabulous meal!
