Product Description

Historical adventure thriller, 1859-61 Mississippi. Into a world built on slavery and male domination, an audacious abolitionist, Durksen Hurst, and a group of undocumented slaves embark on a secret partnership--threatening the town's dominant family, the reclusive Mrs. French and her troubled son, Devereau, who are concealing their own tainted past. When a beautiful fugitive, Antoinette DuVallier, appears, with mysterious ties to the Frenches, long-repressed conflicts are unleashed, tearing asunder the once-sleepy hamlet.

As the story's tangled webs of deceit unravel, each startling plot twist and cathartic revelation shines a fresh light on what it means to be a man or a woman, free or enslaved--indeed, what it means to be human.

"...compelling from the first page to the exciting conclusion. I am anxious to read the next installment." - Historical Novel Society

an entertaining and complexly plotted pre-Civil War novel about fairness and decency versus slavery and greed.
" - Amazon
