About the Author
After retiring from Florida State University, Lynn Braxton returned to her birthplace in the Panhandle of Florida with her two rescue dogs, Snuffy and Sadie. Raised an only child, her earliest companions were paper dolls cut from mail order catalogs. Today, while she pursues her passion for history and writing, she still finds time to search among old trunks and boxes for a dusty shoebox filled with those characters who became the foundation for a lifetime of stories.

This pre-civil war story follows the lives of several southern families during the early 1800s. Historically, the book brings to light the role that many southerners played in the operation of Underground Railroad.
Ms. Braxton is a master storyteller who fills the pages with details and descriptions that support and enhance each and every story line. Characters come to life and readers, even today, are able to relate. I look forward to a sequel book and can envision a television mini series in Miss Lily's future.
Told in third person, the novel frequently shifts perspectives from one character to another.
Braxton delivers a satisfying, old-fashioned story, one rich in well-researched historical details in two of the South’s most cherished locales. Whether Lily is surrounded by orphans, whores, or socialites, she behaves with unwavering class and compassion. You’ll cheer her on all the way to the final page.
