Hi Salon people. I have been gone so long and out of circulation for a little while here. both my mother and father passed recently... both in early 90s..so had long lives. I decided to work on a new book to let the tension in me pass. Here it is. I'll be back soon. I couldn't remember my password!
Baby Moonlight,Book I,Mended Circle Saga.http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007P5PL70 #cajunculture #africanamericanhistory 1.99 #kindle
The Mended Circle Saga traces seven generations born of Philo Marie Sonnier, a deranged and brutal Confederate soldier and an unknown black woman. The time span of the novel is from the Civil War to the present. America is character, as each generation lives in a different place and time.
Baby Moonlight is found abandoned on the banks of the bayou. Raised in the slave quarters of the planatation Jewelweed, Moonlight learns how to take advantage of the breakup of the plantation system after the Civil War. She marries a wealthy white landowner, (the son of the plantation owner upon whose land she grew up a slave orphan) starts a school for young children, and writes the first primer for children of former slaves.
