Randy Willis tells the raw-boned epic, based on his own ancestors, that gives American history a new face and a fresh voice.
A novel about adventure, family, faith and the character of a man who touched generations.
Twice a Slave is the story of a Cherokee slave, a forbidden romance, and tragedies that build faith. One man who is determined to find his purpose and discover his identity becomes a slave a second time, and he changes the course of history in Louisiana.
He was born into slavery before the American Revolution, the son of a Cherokee mother and an English father who faced incredible difficulties. Even though Joseph's life was threatened because of his race and faith, he became the first Protestant to preach the gospel west of the Mississippi River.

Twice a Slave
Joseph Willis was an amazing man
I enjoyed the amount of work and research that was dedicated by Joseph's family to bring his story to life. I experienced emotions of joy, apall, anger, humility, sadness. Great story about a great man
Joseph by far. What an amazing man. Humble, kind, reverent, joyful, tenacious
I enjoyed when Joseph and Ezekial first met Anna and her friend. So sweet, awkward and funny.
This was a very long and detailed story. You really got an excellent sense of the family dynamics, the overall feel of emotions and prejudices, great historical sense as well.
