"For those who enjoy love stories filled with fantasy and gratuitous sex, ESCAPE may leave you wanting. But for real love, love that weathers and conquers society's propensity to marginalize that which is not mainstream, a more compelling story will be hard to find." E.W. Hughes, Amazon Review
Daniel and Lori love each other, yet to live as one in 1856, they must escape from the unyielding society that imprisons them. Lori was born a slave in North Carolina, yet by chance was raised alongside Daniel in a wealthy abolitionist household.
The sudden death of Daniel's mother catapults Lori back into bondage. Relegated to chattel on a rice plantation, Lori lives in constant fear under the tormenting scrutiny of Daniel's wretched aunt.
After Daniel fails to convince his relatives to free Lori, he is compelled to devise a daring escape. Although a life threatening endeavor for both of them, Lori's freedom is priceless to Daniel, and he's willing to pay such a price for her love.
From the Author:
The Unchained Trilogy is an explosive three book series of love, deceit, emotional destruction and in the end, forgiveness. It spans a time period of one hundred and forty two years, with Escape (Book One) opening the series in 1856, and Revelation (Book Three), closing it in 1998. Time does move fast in this family saga, and since there are several years to cover, some purposeful time gaps do exist to move along the narrative.
Unchained was conceived in 1998 as I thought about how sad it would have been if my husband and I had known each other 150 years earlier. Then, being an interracial couple, we couldn't have gotten married. The rest of the story snowballed from there, and eventually swelled to over 800 pages! I worked on it off and on until finally completing it in 2008. However, after letting it sit in my drawer for while, thinking it was too long to do anything with, I decided to turn it into a trilogy. I hope you'll enjoy this ride through time!
