Présentation de l'éditeur

Fire. It had ripped Seffie from her family and stolen her dearest friend. Will she allow it to destroy her one chance at happiness?

Growing up a slave, Seffie served as companion to a sickly white girl and learned to read and write and even speak French. But her life of relative comfort soon comes to an end. When loss and tragedy drive the joy from her life, Seffie quickly learns to guard her heart and hide her past. Secretly, Seffie nurtures a new dream: to seek freedom in the North. But even if she succeeds, can she face the final test of fire?

Can her wounded heart learn to love again?
Or is it too late?

Why danger would stalk such a peace-loving soul was a mystery no one in Greens Crossing ever quite understood except those involved. And they were not the kind of men who talked....

On this particular day in the fall of the year 1869, the local KKK had decided to modify their tactics. They would strike in broad daylight and in plain sight, in order to teach a lesson none in the community would forget.

And so as the fifteen or more white-robed riders galloped toward Greens Crossing a little before noon, the burning torches in their hands were not to light their way as would have been the case had the raid come in the middle of the night.

They intended to put the fire to another use....

5.0 étoiles sur 5 inspiring Reconstruction Era thriller 5 janvier 2007
Par Harriet Klausner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Seffie was born a slave. At seven years old or about she is bought by Peter Mesiner as a companion to his sickly eight year old daughter Grace who suffers from the after effect of scarlet fever. Grace may now be blind and her heart very weak, but she loves to read so Peter buys Seffie and takes her to his Louisiana home. Life seems good to Seffie who learns to read and even to speak French, but as before when she and her brother were accused of arson by their previous owner who sold them to punish them by separating them from their mother, life intercedes and she is gone again.

In 1869 in Greens Crossing, North Carolina the Ku Klux Klan secret men's vigilante club set afire the home of free Blackman Henry Paterson for no apparent reason except the color of his skin. He and Seffie, though victims of many heartbreaks and tragedies caused by god-faring righteous individuals, are attracted to one another, but too many unfair and unjust setbacks make any relationship between them unlikely.

The third Carolina Cousins historical tale (see A PERILOUS PROPOSAL and THE SOLDIER'S LADY) brings home the plight of free blacks just after the Civil War is over and they have been emancipated yet with few real rights. Seffie is terrific lead character as she has learned life's lessons that the powerful can do anything to impoverish people and that tragedy is the norm. Whereas she fears close relationships, Henry remains optimistic for the future and willing to risk his life in spite of the threatened vigilante injustice of the KKK to lynch or burn him. Together enhanced by a strong cast they make an inspiring Reconstruction Era thriller.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Never Too Late by Michael Phillips 6 avril 2010

The books in this series are historic fiction and a delight to read. I love this series, and I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

This particular book is great for adults and secondary level students. I love the author's balanced approach to this time period.

The book series is set in the pre- and post-civil war era. Each book explores the challenges of survival; and the impact the American slave system had on both Blacks and Whites alike.

The moral messages are numerous, outstanding, and extremely valid today. The characters are so empowering and they represent wholesome ideals.

Young people will especially appreciate the strength of the young characters. Adults will love the plots and unpredictable nature of the themes.

This is one of the only series of books that I feel comfortable giving as gifts to family, friends, and associates.

It has been a very moving and educational experience to become involved with the characters in this series, as well as other of series by this author. The story line, historical and fictional, offers those of us interested in the slavery issues a wonderful way to go back and be a part of that history from the pages of this book. This is definitely a "feel good/feel bad" experience.
