Overview

In 1739, sixteen-year-old Eliza Lucas' family is in danger of losing their plantations in South Carolina. With the high value of indigo dye, Eliza believes that it is their salvation.

But thwarted at every turn, even by her family, Eliza finds her only allies in an aging horticulturalist, a lawyer, and a slave with whom she strikes a dangerous deal: teach her the intricate, thousand-year-old secret process of making indigo dye, and in return--against the laws of the day--she will teach the slaves to read. So develops an incredible story of romance, intrigue, hidden friendships, threats, ambition, betrayal, and sacrifice, based on historical documents and Eliza Lucas' own letters.

"Natasha's writing is a fresh and modern spin on great Southern literature." - Ashley Pullo, author of the New Amsterdam series, praise for the author

"A delight to read...Thank you, Natasha, for giving Eliza the recognition she deserves." - Margaret F. Pickett, author of Eliza Lucas Pinckney: Colonial Plantation Manager and Mother of American Patriots, 1722–1793
