Love Twelve Miles Long

By The Fourth Musketeer

More than a story about the brutality of slavery, this is instead a story of a mother’s deep love for her child, a universal theme that transcends Frederick Douglass’ own story. . . . The book is illustrated with beautiful watercolor paintings by Colin Bootman which capture the candlelit slave quarters with glowing light, as well as the quiet peace of the woods through which Douglass’ mother walks on her trips.
