Amber Was Brave, Essie Was Smart : With the voices of two individual, but loving sisters resonating through these poignant, interconnected poems the narrative of their difficult, but hopeful lives unfolds with warmth, clarity and humor. Struggling to get through their days with a father in jail and a mother who works long hours, the two young girls find both joy and sorrow in their daily lives - and loving support in one another. Through her spare verse and inspired combination of black and white art and full color portraits, Vera Williams presents the affectionate bond between two sisters and the poignancy of small moments in time that together tell a much bigger story of survival and love.
