Most of these books (that I was WAY too young to have in my possession) usually ended in tragedy. The hero crumbles under the pressure of family and society, dark lady love gets sold further south (or worse), some poor soul gets lynched or the slaves were always revolting (Who wouldn't?)
In short, there was no romance in these 'romance' novels but rather they were social commentaries on man's inhumanity to man with interracial sex sandwiched in-between all the despair.
Somewhere towards the end of he decade, after 'Mandingo' horrified us and 'Roots' enlightened us, it seems to me that this genre of literature slowly faded into the realm of politically incorrectness.
Having said that, I guess the title, artwork and subject matter in this day and age is what promted me to purchase this book. Though the cover art is amazingly appealing (no hiding in the bushes here!), I still assumed it to be just another story of woefully star-crossed lovers who's lives would end with ruin just like the ones I'd read as a kid but boy, was I pleasently surprised!
'The Slave Master's Son' is a very beautiful treatment of an absolutely horrible time to be in love with 'the wrong person'.
John is a man of conviction and honor who follows his heart without hesitation or regard for consequence. Hannah is smart, resorceful and brave in the face of adversity. In love with each other from childhood, their story is not just a tale of lust between master and slave but of a friendship from birth, true love lived out in the open and romance that extends far beyond the carnal.
My only regret with is book is that ended where it did. I wanted to know what happened after that last page and next after that. I say a sequel is in order. Encore, Ms. Laveen, Encore!
Another standalone!!! Forgiveness, retribution, love, god, trust... Everything was befitted, the love between these , the love making everything ...... All in one *********
Please read this book I so wholeheartedly recommend. I found a new author to rave about....
