Sweet Liberty: Freedom and Love Reign at Four Historical Fourth of July Celebrationsby Paige Winship Dooly, Kristy Dykes, Pamela Griffin, Debby Mayne
Freedom's Cry is heard throughout Philadelphia's first Independence Day celebration. For Sara, an indentured servant, the excitement grows as she anticipates the end of her five-year term. For Winkie, to be loosed from the shackles of slavery and carrying out business as a milliner was to be Free Indeed. But somehow, in the Charleston, South Carolina, of 1859, that doesn't seem to be enough anymore. At the annual Fourth of July festivities of 1897, Sophia finds her American Pie in the center of a bidding war. But she is not free to make her heart's choice between the handsome bidders. Lilly longs for adventure...and the freedom to express herself seriously. But her small town's July 4, 1900, celebration is quickly interrupted with gossip about Lilly's Pirate. Liberty - sweet liberty - can take many forms. How will God help these women find true freedom?
