One thing that astounded me was the prose. Told from the perspective of Realie, a runaway slave, and Lawrence, a lawyer, Huguley captures the syntax of two such disparate people, which deepens the characterization. I really loved it. I also enjoyed the ironies of slavery, freedom, North vs South, race relations, feminism, and personal identity Huguley included. There are no absolutes when it comes to any of those elements--Huguley doesn't shy away from the intersectionality of this time, yet manages to still give Realie and Lawrence a beautiful romance.
The Christian elements are another fantastic layer to the story, and it definitely doesn't feel like 20th & 21st century notions of the faith were tacked onto the past (an issue I have with a lot of Inspirational Historical Romance). So for interested readers who typically shy away from IHR, this is the story of two people who try their best to keep the faith in spite of the injustices and prejudices of their time.
I can't wait for the full length novel in this series!
This is an introduction to Piper Huguley's new Home to Milford College series and now I can't wait for the first real novel!

The story is very easy to read. At no time it gets too fairytale like or too shocking; it states facts from two sides of black peoples vision of slavery. It's a nice talePublished 8 months ago by Client Kindle
