Publisher's Summary

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.

Get Swept Away

Lori thinks of her slavery as a technicality, but when her benevolent owner dies, she believes she must flee everything she knows, including Daniel, her beloved (white) companion since childhood, if she is to obtain her freedom. This suspenseful tale of the persistence of true love was skillfully narrated and will sweep you away.
