    Book Description:
    With Price of a Child—the story of Ginnie Pryor (cook, mistress and servant to a Virginia planter) and her struggle with slavery in 1855—Cary continues has created a work that elevates the reputation she created with Black Ice, her memoir which won her comparisons to Maya Angelou and Richard Wright. In a novel that examines the price of freedom and the value of a child’s life, Price of a Child is "a stunning achievement…a deeply engrossing story…. Cary’s impeccable research and seamless narrative carry us along" (Philadelphia Inquirer).
