Based on the life of Henriette Delille, a 19th-century free woman of color, yearning to help the poorest of the poor in antebellum New Orleans, who tried to join charitable religious orders, but was turned away because of the “negro blood” she shared with those she sought to help. Taking fate into her own hands, she co-founded her own religious order, Sisters of the Holy Family, a New Orleans-based order of African American nuns. This historic novel is a testimony to how each of us has the power to transform the world.
