Dido Elizabeth Belle was born in 1761. It would be nearly 100 years before slavery was abolished. The date would be of little importance if not for one important factor: Belle's father was white, but her mother was African. It was an unthinkable act for the time, and Belle's life was destined for only bad things. But remarkably bad things did not happen.

Belle was sent to live with her uncle, the Earl of Mansfield; here she was raised as a free woman and given the same privileged upbringing as her cousins. This book tells the inspiring true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, and how the life of a woman most people have never heard helped pave the way for future change.

I bought this for my Nook. Nowhere in the overview of this book does it say that it is a study guide. It is very short and not very informative. Most of the text involved the life that Belle's father would have led as an officer in the British Navy and how he rose through the ranks. There is very little concerning Belle herself, and of her adult life, it merely says that she was "able to find a husband and raise a family in a good area of London." If you are interested in a biography of Belle herself, get a different book.

Had the author focused on the title's subject, this "book" would be about 5 pages, Not a very good read at all.
