In this heart-stopping adventure based on real historical events, Kereen Getten takes readers on a journey of sisterhood, struggle and survival from Jamaica to Britain. ‘She was rarely afraid, and even if she was … she still stood her ground, because Ruth never faltered in what she believed in.’ Ruth and Anna are inseparable.
- VOICES: A thrilling series showcasing some of the UK’s finest writers for young people. Voices reflects the authentic, unsung stories of our past.

Our March 2021 Ages 9-10 Book of the Month
My March Book of the Month for children aged 9+ is the heart-stopping adventure Two Sisters: A Story of Freedom. Based on real historical events, Kereen Getten takes readers on a journey of sisterhood, struggle and survival from Jamaica to Britain.
When Ruth and Anna are shipped off to Master John’s home in London for their safety, it isn’t the haven they imagined. Their differences force them apart – Anna is allowed to stay upstairs while Ruth is banished to the servants’ quarters and forced to work. Will Anna find the courage to stand up for Ruth before it’s too late?
I have chosen this book because it is essential reading on part of our countries history and perfect for teaching children about inclusivity and diversity. An invaluable story for any young readers, with the adventure and narrative non-fiction element keeping it engaging and entertaining as well as being historically accurate and educating.
Two Sisters: A Story of Freedom is the 6th book in the Voices series, which showcases some of the UK’s finest writers as they reflect on the authentic unsung stories of our past. Each book reads as a standalone, but great if kids love the series as there’s five more for them to get stuck into straight away!
