Publisher's Summary

Raised on a South Carolina plantation as the house pet of her white master's daughter, Kitty never made a decision for herself. Now, as a young adult, she must preserve her faith while making the biggest decision ever: stay with her master and go south to avoid the Yankees or run away tonight to the North with Grady, the field slave she has come to love. Renowned author Lynn Austin has received three Christy Awards for historical fiction, two for the first books in this Refiner's Fire series.

Loved this book. While it gives the reader a much clearer view into the dehumanization of being a slave (things you would never even think about) it shows how God moves in our lives and what comfort trust and faith can bring. This is one of the best books I've downloaded. The writing puts you right there. Concerned it might be a cheesy romance novel, but not at all, very profound.

Nice historical novel

I just finished listening to Roots by Alex Haley before listening to this book. This one is very much like listening to Roots, and I really enjoyed both of them. Well worth the time because it gives terrific insight into the slave culture and what they went through. All Americans need to read or listen to this book. (Roots, too!)
