Iola Leroy, or, Shadows uplifted by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper( Book )

91 editions published between 1892 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1892, this stirring novel by the great writer and activist Frances Harper tells the story of the young daughter of a wealthy Mississippi planter who travels to the North to attend school, only to be sold into slavery in the South when it is discovered that she has Negro blood. After she is freed by the Union army, she works to reunify her family and embrace her heritage, committing herself to improving the conditions for blacks in America. Through her fascinating characters-including Iola's brother, who fights at the front in a colored regiment-Harper weaves a vibrant and provocative chronicle of the Civil War and its consequences through African American eyes in this critical contribution to the nation's literature."--Publisher description

Moses: a story of the Nile by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper( Book )

15 editions published between 1869 and 1976 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frances Watkins Harper's novel Moses: A Story of the Nile is a retelling of the story of Moses from the Old Testament. However, Harper's story centers on the child Moses, rather than the man Moses. Some scholars believe Harper does this to stress the feminine in legend, showing the influence Moses' mother had on him as a cultivator of a leader and prophet and in helping him to establish his self-identity as a Jew. The Mosaic legend is a theme in many of Harper's works. She admitted her fascination with the story and in her famous speech "Our Greatest Want," she expressed a desire for a leader and prophet like Moses for the Black race
