Listening To God
There are several themes within the novella including that of trusting in God and in His timing. Angelina, a free slave trusts God. She listened to His whispers. She could have gone North but obeyed God and stayed put. It is always important to obey when one hears His voice.
Carrie Fancett Pagels has delightfully drawn Angelina’s niece and nephew. As a reader I could ‘see’ them clearly. They reminded me of the children in the 1942 film Holiday Inn.
