Summary
All Bones Be White is the story of Cassy, a slave who was owned by a Revolutionary War hero. Cassy was tried for murdering her owner's youngest daughter, Phenaty. Gustavus A. Henry, a 29-year-old lawyer distantly related to American patriot Patrick Henry, defended Cassy at her trial. Told in the second person, offering readers intrigue, murder, and redemption, the lives of three women- a slave, a murder victim, and the author as she discovers that her family had owned slaves -are woven together to reveal Cassy's story of what happened in 1833 America and why it still matters today.-Book cover
