Delta Blood is the first in Barbara Ferry Johnson's trilogy centering on the beautiful Leah. The heroine displays the utterly feminine charms of stubborn hope and fragile strength in a man's world. This book is still a cherished favorite today and has the unmistakable appeal of a true romantic classic!
She had always known what it was to be a woman, to want as women want. And now, on the night of New Orleans' most dazzling ball, a lifetime of smoldering passions drew her into the deepening twilight, into the bayous that echoed still with voodoo chants and drumbeats.
Defying the savage embraces of highwaymen and aristocrats, through cruel terrain and the blazing furor of the Civil War, Leah would face all Fate had in store for her--to quench the wild longings that inflamed her, to quell the pounding of her aching heart.
Old book, but in great shape!
This is a romantic saga about a proud bi-racial quadroon (3/4 white), who struggles to fight and over come the racist view of her time period. Rich in historical details, heartbreaking at times, many twists to this story. A must read to any saga fans.
