Antebellum Period. What do you think of? Cotton? Plantations? Slaves? When a young girl gets a birthday present from her father, her life will change like no other. Disappointment and acceptance, why stay when you can run? Why hate when you can love? Color make us separate, but blood makes us equal. In his deep ebony eyes, she is the world. In her glistening emerald eyes, he is her life. In the end, hearts will exceed beliefs when differences collide.

This story has really caught my attention. I wanna see where this goes. I wanna see the main charaters on the cover. Will they become friends? Oh i.know im jumping ajead of myself. I like how she was concerned for the "poor soul" i see her father as being a big bearded qhite man

But I really like how it's a period piece! Was there a lot of research needed? I love historical fiction and always wanted to write one, but I get carried away when I do research and end up just reading a bunch of articles instead!

I think there should be more things happening in the chapter. Maybe some more conversion between Faith and Caroline? It needs a little more substance to help with character development

Just write it for yourself! That's the only way you'll be pleased with it!

Although bolding not helps show the cruelty, it's no encouraged in a book.
