With a law degree from Oxford, an influential Southern family and
the aristocrat Lena McOwen about to become his wife, John Halls
Jr's life is complete. Then he meets Rita, a slave in the family
household - beautiful, caring, delicate, she is in many ways
everything that his fiance is not - Lena is cruel, malicious and
the daughter of a brutal, pro-slavery activist. With America on the
brink of civil war and his family supporting the South's
slave-keeping Confederacy, a relationship with Rita isn't merely
unacceptable, it is a betrayal. But John falls in love with Rita
and she becomes pregnant. Without his knowledge, Rita is abducted
and shipped back to Africa. Setting out to find her, he is swept
along on a perilous journey through Africa to Gibraltar, Haiti, and
finally, returning to America, he becomes a hero of the anti-slave
North. John is reunited with the woman he loves, but will he risk
losing his family and position for the sake of a former slave - and
if he does, will he be prepared for the terrible consequences? This
is a dazzling, provocative story that delves into the meaning of
true love and the cost those pay when they dare to risk everything.
