"Wonderful reading! I really enjoyed reading this book. Once I started reading, I was unable to put the book down until it was completed. It captured my imagination. However, the end was quite a surprise. I recommend this book to those that are interested in reading about slavery, their treatment and the thought process of their masters." -- Amazon reviewer

As heir to the Lawson estate, Tanner Lawson stands to inherit one of the wealthiest plantations in 1861 Maryland. A sprawling estate, lavish home and dozens of slaves are his entitlements. A Northern sympathizer, he must forego the life of luxury and follow his heart into the fires of combat.

Sold to new owners, the mulatto slave Lucy is beginning to believe in a better life. Leaving her harsh past behind her, she embraces her new life as a seamstress. But then she meets Tanner Lawson, handsome and kind, and a future slave owner. She admires Tanner from afar, yearning for a love both impossible and forbidden.

Separated by class, education, skin color and a terrible war, they refuse to give up on each other. Tanner cannot forget the striking young seamstress who has sewn her soul on his heart. Lucy's mind and body ache for Tanner, but she can never share his life. The world is changing, however; the very fabric of society is getting a new identity, new colors.
