Book Review: Yellow Wife by Sadeqa Johnson

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

Genre: Historical Fiction

288 pages

Phebe Delores Brown lived a very sheltered plantation life, under the protective eye of mother. A sudden accident brings many changes. As a result, Phebe is sold into an unknown lifestyle, and the promise of freedom at the age of eighteen…is gone forever.

In this book, the author gives a vivid , yet historical account of a “Yellow Wife”, a woman of position who is often reminded that she is still a slave. Determined to give her children a better life, Phebe is forced to make decisions of survival.

The storyline allowed the heaviness of the topic to flow with ease, and the characterization was on point. I recommend this 💎💎💎💎💎book be read with a book buddy or book club, because you’re going to want to discuss it with someone.
