Handful is a slave girl, the present to her mistress for an eleventh birthday gift. For her, it’s a matter of physical freedom. For her mistress, Sarah, it’s a matter of intellection and social expectation. Told from alternating points of view, each woman explores her limited world and the choices she must make to be happy.

God Got a Dog by Cynthia Rylant and Marla Frazee.
"What if God was living a human existence? What might God do to pass the time? This book celebrates the simple things that make us human and sheds light on how even those simple things are quite beautiful. It’s easy to forget in the hustle and bustle about the daily gifts of our world. But what if God did simple things: Made spaghetti? Went to beauty school? Caught a cold?
Then you would have the beauty of this book of poems that will make you smile as you read the adventures. The illustrations are lovely and make you think as much as the words. Pick this book up. Read it to your child. Read it yourself. Celebrate the simple things and realize how special they are. And enjoy discovering where the divine meets the mundane." - Crystal Inman
