Throughout childhood, in a realm built with slavery, upper-class privileges felt more like shackles of hypocrisy to Madeleine. With a special talent for ostracizing herself from social circles for speaking out publicly against injustice, most of her days were spent alone, writing controversial articles for brave journals and, together with being unmarried in her twenties in such expectant times, the future sought to leave her feeling misunderstood, alone, and powerless to encourage change. That is, until the day she happened upon a slave in a cage and did something desperate which would lead to a future she could never have imagined, not in the wildest of her ominous dreams.

About the Author
Farren B. Ifield was born in Sydney, Australia, and spent most of his childhood living on a horse stud in Queensland by Mount Walker, an extinct volcano, which his childhood imaginings decided was the petrified stump of a giant felled tree and that the petrified logs found far and wide were in fact fallen branches long since transformed into colorful stone. Despite challenging circumstances, his imagination rarely stood still and, having access to thousands of open acres, he enjoyed the exploration of nature, a diverse array of animal friends and writing poetry and short stories about all his adventures. As with drawing, sculpting, photography, and cinematography, creative writing has always been of great interest and after much wandering, he is now living in Sydney again, for a time anyhow, following as many creative aspirations as possible. With all his heart, he hopes that you enjoy his first published story as much as he enjoyed writing it.
