    Libertie PDF/EPUB º Hardcover libertie kindle, Libertie ePUBFind this and other reviews at was not sure what to expect when I plunked Libertie from my staggering TBR I had not read Kaitlyn Greenidge before but I was drawn to both the themes in the jacket description and the novel’s uniue setting I have not encountered many stories set in Haiti and I could not resist jumping at the opportunity to indulge my interest in culturally diverse historicalsGreenidge’s novel is not a strict biographic fiction but both Cathy and Libertie Sampson are modeled on real people The inspiration for Dr Cathy Sampson came from the life and achievements of Dr Susan Smith McKinney Steward the first African American woman to earn a medical degree in New York state Dr Steward had two children with her first husband Rev William G McKinney and while I could not find much about either online I did discover a New York news clipping announcing the marriage of Anna M McKinney to Louis Holly of Port au PrinceI do not know how
