New Book Release Set in Controversial Civil War Period Deals with Abolition and Slavery
Romance Is Possible in "Magnolia Blossom" Amidst Politics and Racial Controversy
By: Joanne's Books
In Valdosta, Georgia, 1863, while America is ravaged by the chaos of the Civil War, young Magnolia Mae becomes a widow and inherits her parents' plantation. Surrounded by scheming neighbors, connivingly jealous southern belles, and unscrupulous slaveowners, Maggie Mae is a sparkling diamond in the mire of prejudice and hatred which she repays with love, kindness, and compassion. A staunch abolitionist, she treats her slaves with dignity and respect, ignoring the centuries-old tradition of oppression and bondage.
When a handsome young Yankee named Wesley appears, he tosses her into a tumultuous sea of passion, delight, anxiety, and unshakable defiance of the ways of the South. This riveting page-turner takes you to a land devastated by war. Find out what happens when a forbidden love challenges the evils of slavery and bigotry.
"The idea for this book came about a year earlier after watching a documentary on slaveowners,"
