All Different Kinds of Free

All Different Kinds Of Free

Jessica McMann weaves a beautifully sad and touching story around the known facts about Margaret Morgan, whose story prompted Prigg vs. Pennsylvania and began the fight concerning states rights that would later lead to the civil war in her book, All Different Kinds Of Free. The story follows Margaret, a free black woman, who is kidnapped by a bounty hunter, along with her children. The book is beautifully written, pulling the reader in so that they may feel what Maragaret did as she has everything taken from her and conveying what it truly meant to be black in America prior to the civil war. The book had me on the verge of tears the entire time I read it, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone.
