Booklist Review

Although she's the daughter of a Louisiana plantation owner, Marianne Johnston does not fit the mold of a Southern belle. Acting as a nurse to injured slaves, Marianne hides her abolitionist sympathies behind feigned ennui until she decides to risk all and join the Underground Railroad. When Marianne's brother brings his friends the Chamard brothers to the plantation, she is disturbed by the way Yves, the younger brother, makes her feel. Yves realizes that Marianne is more than a typical insipid debutante, and trusts her to help him find his missing mulatto brother, taking her on an adventure that exposes her to the real evil of the slave trade. Craig's romance depicts Southern life before the Civil War with sympathetic characters, and highlights the lifestyle and the moral dilemma faced by white Southerners who opposed slavery. --Patty Engelmann Copyright 2007 Booklist
