Leah's Story tells of an African-American girl born on a rice plantation, who grows up serving her rich owners in Georgia. Her life, like so many others, could have ended there were it not for a bit of education and Emancipation, which gave her, and later her children, opportunities to fulfill their dreams. Told in journal form, taken down by the mysterious “Miss Elliott,” Leah’s personal history comes to life like the tiny birds she carves, revealing a lifetime of love and opportunity amidst a culture filled with hardship, pain, and loss.

C.M. Huddleston wrote Leah's Story with teens in mind, but the book has readers from ages ages from 13 to 96.

"Leah's Story" by C. M. Huddleston was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review. Step back into the 1800's to hear the life and times of Leah and her family. Ms. Huddleston writes this in such a way, you will feel right there by Leah as she suffers the loss of family through devastating conditions due to illnesses, and slavery. With the phrase used, "just so, just so," it was apparent that Leah had to move forward regardless of the conditions she and her family suffered. Leah's story of the sweet bird she made to leave behind for others "to remember" will bring tears to readers eyes. Thank you author C. M. Huddleston for bringing forth this beautiful story.
