A Most Precious Gift
by Jacqueline Freeman Wheelock
Four Stars for Ms. Wheelock!
Jacqueline Wheelock has fashioned a story that gives readers a peek into the life and loves of slaves on a plantation in Louisiana.
The hero is a freed black man filled with angst over his freedom when his brothers and sister remain enslaved. The heroine is a slave struggling to find her worth inside and outside of her faith. When the heroine accidentally destroys the hero’s freedom papers, she sets them on path that not only puts the hero in grave danger, but is certain to tear down the budding attraction and feelings they have for one another.
Well written, this book was a quick, enjoyable read. A couple of characters’ careless actions pulled me out of the story, but the suspense of wanting to know how the main characters would survive the manipulations of the villains kept me reading.
I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.
