From the shores of a faraway continent, across a restless ocean, onto the Piedmont of North Carolina, and into the hills of Tennessee, comes this historical fiction story that is inspired by the life and times of the indomitable Pleasant Lane, 1820 - 1905, a free, educated, black woman who was kidnapped and forced into bondage for twenty miserable years. She refused to concede to defeat even in despairing circumstances. Holding onto a family heirloom she managed to keep, she dared to fall in love midst hate and intrigue, and risked limb and life to help her people. Her life's most glorious moment came when she had the opportunity to welcome the Union Army into the mansion--the liberators finally arrived. The author presents a writing that makes for compelling reading, and offers some newer insights based on real facts.
