The little twist that made certain things possible, I loved. But I caught onto the clue of it, long before it's reveal.
Overall I did like this read and I would recommend it.
She adds depth to the characters so well that in my mind's eye, I could see the characters. Also, her style of writing is so captivating that I just could not put this book down until the ending! Many fiction books, I read it and stop, come back, etc.
If you like romance books, I think that you will like this one as it is not too long, nor too short and very well written.
Emma is a recent widow who hides a scandalous family secret. In Frederick she meets someone who thrills her, accepts her and teaches her all the things she's missed. But she's in danger too - an unwanted suitor will stop at nothing to get her. When he threatens Frederick and has him tossed in jail on trumped up charges, it seems as though her life is over. We feel for Emma and her plight. It's easy to root for her and Frederick to get their happy ending.
I look forward to reading book 2 in the series!
This well written story is set in 1865 in Kentucky, by an author who understands the era. Frederick is a freedman who works as a roustabout by day and a "gentleman caller" by night. Emma, a white skinned, wealthy young widow, first meets him in this latter paid position, and they grow to love each other. The villain in this romance is a hateful man determined to make Emma his wife, but the most powerful problem they face is the attitude of whites toward mixed race couples.
There were a few awkward sentences, and the price seems a bit high for the length, but I can recommend this for those interested in this era in American history. The setting is believable and you will enjoy Emma and Frederick's journey to love.
Set in 1865, the story begins with Emma Bennetts' husband dying in a carriage accident. This sets her free and releases her from the loveless marriage she had endured. Emma decides to enjoy her freedom before wanting to settle down with a husband and to have a family.
Taking the advice of a prominent socialite she is acquainted with, Emma hires a black man as her lover and to fulfill her most intimate desires. Frederick works as a roustabout by day and a prostitute at night.
After their first night together Emma and Frederick become enraptured with each other. He knows better than to fall in love with a white woman and backs away to keep them both safe. How now can he protect Emma from the detestable Mr. Hawthorne who wants her to become his wife.
A captivating story of forbidden love and I look forward to more by this author.
