This book was a surprise. As an African American I have always avoided books about slavery. The thought that if I would have been born 148 years earlier that could have been me. I can not even watch movies about slavery because the pain and hardships my ancesters endured is hardbreaking but this book captured me. The series started out with the civil war through the eyes of the confederates, next through the eyes of the union and finally the eyes of the slaves. Powerful! It also made it clear why the slaves survived and the union won......it was because God was in charge. Bravo on a job well done. It also showed that God's love is colorblind.

In 1862 South Carolina, Confederate soldiers warn Missy Claire that 6000 Yanks are marching towards her Plantation and arming slaves. Missy is angry and panicking as she orders her slaves but talks down to them as if they are cattle or pets, which is how she sees them. Field slave Grady informs house slave Kitty that he plans to run away and would like her, the woman he loves, to come with him to freedom. Kitty hesitates as she has lost the ability to make decisions having spent her life having her massahs tell her what to do........................ As Kitty struggles whether to run off with Grady or stay with Missy, she reflects back to the early 1850s when she as a child met her young mistress. Kitty, called Anna, back then, had some kittens that Missy wanted, but her mother said no that anything owned by a darkie is diseased. So Missy tells her mom that she wants the darkie as her kitty. Since then Kitty has always done whatever her owner tells her to do, but now with war everywhere can Anna be resurrected from the dead?..................... This deep look at the lives of slaves and to a lesser degree their owners in the decade just before and during the Civil War is an insightful historical tale. Readers will be stunned by the incredible characterizations inside of a world turned upside down for so many people. The story line rotates between Anna-Kitty and Grady, but fans observe how others in their circle read. Fans of the Antebellum South will want to read the latest Refiner¿s Fire tale as Lyn Austin hits on all cylinders with a fantastic novel...................... Harriet Klausner

I've read alot of Civil War novels and I have to say that this is one of my favorites. I read it along with a couple of friends of mine who HATE reading with a passion and they couldn't put it down. The characters are wonderfully developed and you feel their pain and their joy throughout the different challenges they face. Also, I like the way the characters in the other books were incorporated and the main character replays some of the same events just from a totally different point of view. Great Read!!! I recommend it to anyone who loves historical fiction.

What a wonderful book! I sure hope and pray that in my life time we can all be color blind. As a g'ma of a bi racial baby, it breaks my heart that she may be judged because her daddy is black and mommy white. When she is older I hope she can read this type of inspirational book! Thanks to this author

This is the first time I have ever reviewed a book , I liked the book that much. Every book in this series tears at your heartstrings and really makes you think about what is important in life. I have read thousands of books and this tops my list no questions. It is definitely worth the money. The way she ties in all the books and characters is an added bonus ! My new favorite author !!
