REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:

This legendary, and sometimes heartbreaking story of Cathy Williams is truly epic. Williams escapes a tobacco farm during the Civil War with her mom and sister, is caught and separated from her family and becomes a cook for the union army. Despite her sometime insolence and strong will, she survives, and at the war’s end to escape an even scarier time for freed slaves, she disguises herself as a man to join the elite Buffalo Soldiers.

Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen is sweeping, emotional and bittersweet story of perseverance, character and survival – during a volatile time in American’s history. The struggles, wins and loses in Cathy’s life are horrifying and sometimes tragic – and you’ll feel equal parts of heartbreak and pride in hearing her story.
