About the Book - A Book in her Hands

A Book in her Name, John S Munday

A Book In Her Hands tells the story of a young lady, Sara Haines, who seeks to be emancipated from being viewed as property by her parents and whose goal in life is to be an artist. She knows Winslow Homer because they lived in the same town near Cambridge, MA. Homer strongly affirmed women’s rights and the full humanity of slaves, but he spoke only through his art. In the 1860s and 1870s, so-cial conditions forced some women into a repressed life, being seen as property rather than as humans. Sara sought freedom to be her own self. One line in the novel that sums up her ambitions is when she tells Homer that she is as free as he is, to select what she paints. Other freedom for Sara comes to her as well.
