“A charming read!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Phillip
This is a story of love, birth and heartbreak.
Angel Stalling’s beautiful novel tells of racism and slavery in the deep south during the mid 19th Century, and how barriers can be lifted through the gift of love. Her writing is exquisite, pondering and animated. Her descriptive pen also brings characters to life as though you were watching the whole thing in UHD!
An amazing read!
