His son formed a romantic attachment to the beautiful strong willed slave, Easter, and together they had a daughter, Queen, Alex Haley's grandmother. After the Civil War, Queen left the plantation a free woman, tried to find her identity in a world in which she looked white but was regarded as black. She eventually married Alec Haley, a ferryboat operator, and together they strove to provide everything possible for their growing family. The culmination of Queen's dreams was when her last-born son, Simon, graduated from college, just one generation up from slavery. Alex Haley wrote the Pulitzer-Prize winning book "Roots".Hide synopsis

I love this book! This was actually my second copy, I have a hardcover first edition, but my son was finishing Roots and was interested in Queen as well, and I purchased an inexpensive, well-worn copy for him to read.
