Forced into slavery as a child, Jonathan Carrick escapes to a new life but within him lies the need for revenge against George Stokes, the son of his former master.

Mallory Carrick, confined to a wheelchair, seeks to find out the truth about her grandfather's history.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. It had such an impact on me that 14 years later I still remember the pain and sadness. Wonderful
