Very good book!! This is part of a series, but can stand alone with no loss of understanding. I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed this book AND the series. If you like Civil War era stories, this is definitely for you.
This was a great conclusion to the series! I loved it so much because I felt the characters' feelings while reading it. I felt like I was there with them.
Anna has been a chambermaid throughout her childhood for a spoiled girl Missy Claire. She made the slave girl act like a cat, naming her Kitty for the rest of her time with her. She served her slave owner well and did her best to do what she was told. Anna loved to draw so much but wasn't able to see much of the world to draw.
Grady was sold as a young boy to a slave trader. He worked hard but hated the way he was treated by each slave master he had. He missed his mother and hated that white people would separate him from his family. Grady eventually is with a new master who treats him much kindly but he has so much hatred for the white man.
Delia loves Jesus so much and wants Grady to understand who He is. Grady wants no part of God, for how could a loving God allow him to be treated like he had been. Delia is like a mother figure to him.
And then Grady and Anna/Kitty meet. This story is about their relationship with one another and their struggle in finding God. It was really interesting and amazing. It totally gives you a great insight to how slaves were treated during the Civil War period.
