Publisher's Summary

Daniel, a member of the southern gentry, soon learns the harsh realities of being poor. His father dies with a mountain of debt and leaves him very little. Daniel sells his mount in order to keep his manservant James. He and James are secretly lovers but must hide their feelings to meet society's expectations.

Together they must work themselves to the bone to get their farm to pay. It's not long before their relationship is discovered by their nosy neighbor who bent on owning their land. They are separated, but it is forever? It's up to James, a man with few rights, to protect his master if he wants to keep their love alive.

    Story
    "Good story, but so-so narration"

    I really liked this story of the intimate relationship between a former Southern gentleman and his African-American slave/lover. The lengths they go to to stay together and the struggles they overcome in the face of bankruptcy, discrimination, and other misfortunes are both heart-breaking and heart-warming. The story was good, but the narration was not as strong. It was broken up and the narrator seemed to stumble over some words and names. The delivery was very uneven and there was minimal to no distinction between the educated white Daniel's voice and the slave James'.
    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
