The beginning of an 8 book series, I could not wait to get to the next one. And I was so sorry to finish the last one. They were impossible to put down. The story was gripping from the first page. The people were so real, you could imagine yourself there. Just enough humor and mystery to keep you interested.

Mayme Jukes and Katie Clairborne both grew up on plantations near the same town in Shenandoah County, North Carolina, but their lives were vastly different. Mayme was born into slavery, while Katie enjoyed a privileged life as the daughter of a wealthy plantation owner. But in the final days of the Civil War, the two teenagers are thrown together when both of their families are murdered by marauding outlaw soldiers. Fleeing from the massacre of her family, Mayme stumbles across Katie's plantation, where she is the only one left alive. Mayme stays to help Katie, and eventually the girls become close friends in spite of their differences. But can these two teenage girls survive on their own, and hide the truth that they are all alone on the plantation? I highly recommend this heartwarming historical novel about two girls from very different backgrounds who, after suffering a common tragedy, come together to help each other out, eventually becoming the best of friends. Although labeled as an adult book, I think this novel would have the most appeal to teenagers, because of the young characters. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series and finding out what happens to Mayme and Katie next.

This book is just superb. I loved every bit of it. It had me on my toes the whole entire time. I couldn't put it down. I kept forgetting that it was fiction. It also suprised me that the author was a white man. He makes it seem like he was there or something. It is just a wonderful book and i love it.

The first in a series of 4books featuring the same characters. I enjoyed all four books. A good read.

This book surprised me at every turn. It's a great book about how two girls learn to look past the racial barriers of their time, no small feat for the time period they were born into, and survive and thrive in spite of their circumstances. I went out the day I finished it and bought the sequel.

I really hate how these authors write these 200 page books, then span them out into several books just to make you buy more books,with each book costing more and more,but only about 200 pgs per book. Its a rip off. I refuse to pander to these authors that do this. They could put these books together into one book, instead they cut them up and you end up paying a fortune for them. They are not worth it.

This is a great series about life post civil war! The title of one books says it all---The color of your skin is not the color of your heart

What a wonderful story! It's one of those books that I could recommend to my mother, my teenaged grandchildren and even to my husband. Through the eyes and story telling of one character, you come to see and feel the drama and conflict of both girls' story. I will certainly buy the next in the series

I'm glad this book was a free e-book because I would have felt cheated had I paid for it. The beginning was fairly good, enough so I wanted to see what happened to the characters, but it was poorly written. For example, it is hard to imagine a 15 year old slave girl in the old south having a conversation using the word guttersnipe.
