Adalia Winston has escaped her abusive master and fled to America to start a new life. She is content with helping out at the slave orphanage and being a doctors apprentice. Although when she meets Morgan, a plantation owners son, she tries very hard not to fall in love with him. Morgan tries over and over to charm her, but when her secret comes out will their love breach all boundaries?
This book takes place in America when everyone owned slaves and thought nothing of it. It really opened my eyes to how badly slaves were treated and how haughty the social elite were. The one thing that made this book stand out was the epilogue, I enjoyed reading what happened to the characters after their story was over. Although there was some racial language this is book quotes scripture and makes many references to God. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Christian novels and true love stories.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book for review from NetGalley.
