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.

No. I feel this book over describes or repeats character details and is to "preachy."
Most interesting is the method of escape from the plantation. Least interesting is the repetitive descriptions of the characters anxieties.
The personality of the characters is expressed well by the performance
If I had not been in the car for several hours I would not have finished the book. At home I definitely would have returned it to Audible within the first 3 hours of listening.
The storyline is interesting and I stuck with with the book by fast forwarding many times. I would not waste my time or money on the next two books in the trilogy.
