In 1850 Charleston, South Carolina, brutality and cruelty simmer just under the genteel surface of Southern society.
In an era where ladies are considered mere property, beautiful and headstrong Willow Hendricks’ father has filled her life with turmoil, secrets, and lies. Her father rules her life until she finds a kindred spirit in spunky, outspoken Whitney Barry, a northerner from Boston. Together these Charleston belles are driven to take control of their own lives—and they are plunged into fear and chaos in their quest to fight for the rights of slaves. Against all odds, these feisty women fight to secure freedom and equality for those made powerless and persecuted by a supposedly superior race. Only when they’ve lost it all do they find a new beginning. Book 1 presents Willow and Whitney—and the reader—with the hardships the slaves endure at the hands of their white masters.
This amazing debut novel has a Gone With The Wind feel but it’s told like you are reading a journal.
Each character’s back story is told individually so that you have at least a small sampling of what they are about.
Willow has a feisty side, something unexpected of a southern belle of this time period. She would like nothing more than to free not only her Father’s slaves but also all of those on neighboring plantations as well.
There are secrets abound most of which will affect Willow’s life in one way or another.
With a controlling father, a friend whose Father is a cruel slave master, violence and subterfuge this book is impossible to put down.
The only real problem is that it ends without a complete story resolution.
I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development. Their is an underlying and building love that we never see resolved so we must wait for a sequel.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book to read via Hidden Gems.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
