This chapter turns to look at Angelina Grinké's childhood, which was relatively easy compared to Sarah's. Angelina's relationship to religion was much more tortuous than Sarah's had been. At one point she was the target of attack, with her mental health being questioned. Criticism and conflict did not scare her as much as they did her older sister. She felt that as a Quaker in Charleston she could exert a positive influence. She came to the conclusion, however, that she had to leave the South.
