Yellow Crocus by Laila Ibrahim

I read this book in one day… that never happens anymore! Sunday morning I woke up early, made coffee, and decided to start a new book while everyone was still snoozing. It immediately pulled me in, back to the times of slavery in the South (mid-1800’s Virginia). The story revolves around a wet nurse who is pulled from her own infant son to care for a little girl born to her masters. The girl spends the first years of her life thinking her nurse is her mother, and eventually showing the confusion she has when life’s social complications come into play. Heartwarming and sincere, Yellow Crocus is a must-read for those who enjoy historical fiction mixed with a dose of sweetness. You will smile and cry, and want to begin all over again when it’s finished.
