Ishmael

$38.00

(29 customer reviews)

You will never read a story that is more inspiring and challenging than Ishmael. The heights of success achieved by this young man reveal little of the utter poverty into which he was born. He enters life motherless and poor, and despite the wishes of everyone around, he survives and flourishes in his paltry environment. His commitment to integrity and his singular focus on preserving his mother’s name give his life focus and purpose. His perseverance and determination to educate himself in law give him the opportunity to influence the highest levels of government. E.D.E.N. Southworth captures the rich panorama of sights and sounds in rural Maryland in the decades prior to the Civil War. When you reach the end, don’t despair; the drama continues in the sequel, Self Raised!

    Gripping Storyline This is a HUGE book (500+ pages) but was hard to put down. Gripping storyline that kept you wondering when the truth would be made known and if the main character would crumble under all the adversity he encountered in life. Morals and virtues were upheld. Highly recommend.

    Ishmael Very excellent quality. We will use Lamplighter in the future.
