The theme woven throughout the pages of this book is: I see you.
Each of the main characters is on a journey of discovery, seeing the people put in their paths with new eyes. For Priscilla Nichols, this happens when she becomes involved with the social injustice of human trafficking.
As I stated in the Author Notes at the back of the book, a portion of the proceeds of this book will go to help victims of this horrific crime. Please consider joining me by giving to the organizations listed or to one of your own choosing. Together we CAN make a difference!
I first learned of the Slave Narratives, as they're called, while researching slavery in Texas for my plantation novels. Drawn to the word-for-word and often heart-wrenching telling of life in bondage, I wanted to learn more about the narratives and how they came about.
Here are some of the websites I visited as well as a couple books I used to help me write Frankie's and Rena's stories.
