Sapphira and the Slave Girl is Willa Cather's last novel, published in 1940. This is the story of Sapphira Dodderidge Colbert, a bitter but privileged white woman, who becomes irrationally jealous of Nancy, a beautiful young slave.

The author Willa Cather balances an atmospheric portrait of antebellum Virginia against an unblinking view of Sapphira's slaves' lives. 

 Sapphira and the Slave Girl is an excellent addition to your vintage Willa Cather collection or home library.


The book Sapphira and the Slave Girl is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. Please note the bookplate on the inside cover, as shown in the photos.
