Product description

Product Description

Songs of the Heart. A Symphony of the Soul.

LOVE CONQUERS ALL! In Life and in Death…

Inspired by true historical events, An Uncommon Folk Rhapsody reveals the story of a recently orphaned young Asian boy wearing a jade amulet, once owned by his mother, now the only link to his past. Over time, an American merchant ship's captain transforms this once timid young boy into an admirable young man as he becomes a scout, fighting for the Union Army during the height of the American Civil War.

A young girl ripped from her homeland in Africa and forced to endure the horrors aboard a slave ship set sail for the American shores. She is sold into slavery and taken to a plantation deep in Alabama, where she must find the strength to brave the new world and accept her plight in life. No longer a free child running through the plains of Africa, she is now considered livestock to do the constant bidding of her Master.

Ten years later, by a chance of fate, the beautiful slave girl encounters the scout from the north and a forbidden romance is sparked. The two feel an immediate connection to one another, but the prospect of ever being together seems an impossible and dangerous dream to attain. The star-crossed lovers yearn to be with one another. All hope seems lost., But through their love and their loss, hope springs eternal. The reader will be forever touched by this eloquent story of love and survival amidst one of the darkest chapters in our nation’s history.
