Editorial Reviews Review

Hester Wyatt is a free black woman who harbors runaway slaves. Freedom fighter Black Daniel lands badly beaten on her doorstep. Hester finds herself attracted to the arrogant man. Their time together proves short and his goodbye causes her heartache. But not for long. He returns as Galen Vachon, a wealthy man accustomed to getting what he wants, and he loves and wants Hester. He showers her with gifts and attention, but his elite status means he can never marry her. She was once a slave, her stained indigo hands proof of her lowly status. When a slave catcher threatens them both, the Black Daniel comes to her rescue and forever captures her heart. A love story you won't want to miss; it touches the heart and soul.


"Eller conveys Hester's strength and Galen's determination and devotion with impressive clarity, making each character a unique individual." ---AudioFile

I do not normally read historical romances. I was selecting books from a book club, saw the Black characters on the cover and decided to give it try. I was amazed at the how vivid the characters were and how they seemed to almost jump off the page. More importantly, I WAS AMAZED THAT BEVERLY WROTE BOOKS ABOUT STRONG, SENSITIVE, GOOD BLACK MEN!!!!! I had never read a book that painted Black men in a such a positive light.
Not only is Galen stunningly handsome, but he truly loves Hester and spares no expense at showing her so. He is well read, wealthy, and has impeccable manners. I also like the fact that Hester is one of our darker skinned beauties. Therefore, smashing the horrible myth that Black is only beautiful if lighter in color.
I have since read each and every book Beverly Jenkins has written and they are all fabulous. Indigo is my favorite followed closely by Through the storm, a completely separate story, however, the characters were introduced in Indigo. I love the way she entertwines more than one story, and a large piece of African American history as well.

Before Beverly Jenkins I didn't read romance novels. My experience had been suffering through several really bad, corny books to find a good one, or at least decent one. I was talked into trying one of Beverly Jenkins' books by a friend who even got me the book because I refused to waste my money. And what a wonderful, and exciting treat. I first read Vivid. I returned my friends copy and bought my own. And I have read all of Ms. Jenkin's books. I love the way she takes a background or supporting character from one book and tells their story in another. Her work is exceptional. She even gives a list of resources, at the end of each book, where the reader can find more information about black history of time period in her book. After much debating, my sister and I decided Indigo is our favorite. Through the Storm is also #1 because it's the life story of Galen's best friend, the main male characters in Indigo. Vivid, Nightsong,Topaz and Always and Forever would be my second favorites. I just can't choose. The thing I love most about her books is, unlike many Black, Books, Music, Movies, etc., she portrays black people as the intelligent, industrious, complex people we are instead of the stereotypical, crying over a man, can't find a job, somebody is cheating, self hating, loud and wrong images we constantly see. Those of us that don't relate to those negative images have a hard time finding stories that we do relate to about educated, or not, career minded, black, people in love relationships that are just dealing with life's problems and success, ups and downs. I love this author and can't wait for the next book. Any movie deals in the works for one of these fabulous stories?

Detroit's own Beverly Jenkins never disappoints when it comes to historical fiction. Indigo begins with letters in the Prologue from David Wyatt to Katherine Wyatt. In the letters, David explains how he gave up his freedom and became a slave just to be with the woman he loves. The man chose love over freedom! Can you imagine? Their love produced a child named Hester, who was eventually separated from her mother. David pleads for his sister Katherine to find Hester and bring her north.

Fast forward 25 years later and the setting is Whittaker, Michigan. Hester is a station on the Underground Railroad. The legendary Black Daniel is wounded in her home. Slave catchers had been hunting Black Daniel for years because he led slaves north. He was one of the most successful conductors. It was a very dangerous choice to hide him, but Hester agreed. It isn't long before she realizes how rude and arrogant Black Daniel really is. But as he heals, he cannot turn his back from Hester, affectionately nicknamed "Indigo." The story takes us through the span of one year, their love and freedom.

I love historical fiction books by Beverly Jenkins because they teach history lessons. It is very interesting to read how the state of Michigan was years ago. Did you know that a freed slave's free papers were the most valuable documents? A person could be subject to kidnapping without them. Do you know the symbol that showed runaway slaves which houses were safe to approach on the Underground Railroad? If you have not read Indigo yet, grab it now for less than $6. Find out why Black Daniel chose the nickname "Indigo" for Hester (a history lesson in itself). It is a great read for Our History Month.

Before reading Beverly Jenkins, I was a snob when it came to Romance Novels. Wouldn't entertain the thought of reading one. Now she has a fan for life. I've read all her other novels with the exception of Vivid, which I cannot find, so my expectations are pretty high. Indigo surpasses them all. Long after you've removed the book mark and closed the back cover this story will haunt you. The thing that makes Beverly so great is a combination of lyrical writing(the dialog between character is witty and the word-play between lovers is both spirited and lusty), incredible storylines, and characters that live and breath.
Hester Wyatt (Indigo) is the type of woman, we all strive to be, strong, honorable, intelligent and committed to causes she believes in. Galen Vachon is her soulmate, he is without a doubt the most handsome, determined and passionate character ever. Together they find love, discover passion and the rewards of shared commitment.
This is a must read!
