If you consider when this book was written (1950) the patronizing, well-meaning but still racist tropes aren't as glaring as they are in 2017. I usually am able to be forgiving about something being a product of its time, but I had a harder time with this book.

I'm always a little sad to see a book without its dust jacket. So when I open an unassuming hardback and find lovely front pieces like this I'm reminded to never judge a book by its cover. The Book is called Beloved Bondage by Elizabeth Yates. I couldn't find it on Litsy so I used a different one by her.😘 #bookstagram #vintagebooks #moon #neverjudgeabookbyitscover #peteandfreddys #elizabethyates
