Merging comprehensive research and grand storytelling, Mr. and Mrs. Prince is the remarkable true story of Lucy Terry, the first known African-American poet, and Abijah Prince, her husband, who was a veteran of the French and Indian wars and an entrepreneur.  Together they pursued what would become the cornerstone of the American dream – having a family and owning property where they could live, grow, and prosper.  Here is a story that not only demonstrates the contours of slavery in New England but also unravels the most complete history of a pre-Civil War black family known to exist.  Illuminating and inspiring this book uncovers the lives of those who could have been forgotten and brings to light a history that has intrigued but eluded many until now.
