Wolf by the Ears by Ann Rinaldi

Wolf by the Ears is an emotional depiction of Harriet’s (Sally Hemings’ daughter) preparation to leave forever the home she loves at age 21, a home where she was pampered,loved and educated, though still Thomas Jefferson’s slave. The book is a fictional journal of what might have been her thoughts. Not intending to leave, she is confronted by certain realities – that living at Monticello she would be a slave and not protected after Jefferson’s death, that there is no guarantee of physical protection 24 hours a day for a “black” girl of marriageable years. Ultimately she decides she must leave and struggles with her decision and whether or not she is Jefferson’s daughter.
