A few moments after birth, Lisbeth is taken from the arms of her mother and immediately handed to those of a black wet nurse named Mattie. Mattie is a slave, and upon the orders of her master, she is forced to leave her own child and care for another. Lisbeth and Mattie then form an unlikely bond that grows only stronger through the years. Lisbeth comes to know a life of privilege and affluence, but neither is enough to ease away the loneliness brought by the company of her subservient mother and indifferent father. Over time, Mattie becomes more like family to her than her own flesh and blood. Their hearts grow even closer—their bond even stronger—with every visit to the quarters of the slaves as well as their warm, welcoming community. Laila Ibrahim's Yellow Crocus is a story set in the turbulent mid-1850s—a period when tensions are high and the country is at the brink of change. It tells of the bond between two women from opposite worlds—a love that is undimmed by time, unbound by race. Wait no more, take action and get this book now!

Moments after Lisbeth is born, she's taken from her mother and handed over to an enslaved wet nurse, Mattie, a young mother separated from her own infant son in order to care for her tiny charge. Thus begins an intense relationship that will shape both of their lives for decades to come. Though Lisbeth leads a life of privilege, she finds nothing but loneliness in the company of her overwhelmed mother and her distant, slave-owning father. As she grows older, Mattie becomes more like family to Lisbeth than her own kin and the girl's visits to the slaves' quarters—and their lively and loving community—bring them closer together than ever. But can two women in such disparate circumstances form a bond like theirs without consequence? This deeply moving tale of unlikely love traces the journey of these very different women as each searches for freedom and dignity.
