Alabama. 1963. 

Annabeth Washington lived her entire life according to her parents rules. At 18 years old, she wore what her Mama told her to wear, went where her Daddy told her to go and played the part of a perfect Southern daughter the best she could.
Inside, she was dying to break away. She wanted nothing more than to make a difference in the way the World worked. She yearned to climb her way out of from Small-town Alabama and live the life she always dreamed of living. 
She just didn't know how.
Enter Terrence White- Her knight in shining armor- The man who rescues her from a brutal assault on the streets of Birmingham without a second thought as to how it could effect his safety. God only knew how dangerous it would be for a Colored boy to fight two white men and win- Even if it was to save a beautiful girl in distress.
Dark brown eyes meet a vibrant blue and two souls collide in the night. Two lives are forever changed as Annabeth and Terry form an unlikely relationship that can and will prove dangerous to themselves and those they hold most dear.
Follow Terry and Annabeth on their journey to Freedom, and on their journey to true love.

**Please be advised that the first chapter is the length of 2-3 chapters due to editing. Following chapters will be a normal size. Thank you.**

Reader Reviews:
"Can I just say that this is probably my favorite interracial romance book so far on Wattpad. This book was literally such a whirlwind of emotions and really deserves more recognition. I have nothing against bwwm books but it's been so hard looking for a bmww book and this one is absolutely amazing <3." -StilaXxQueen

"Greatest book ever. Thank you." -Thembozi

"This is one of my favorite interracial stories I ever read..." -Chaniceeexo

 #Rebelbc I love the way you describe this through his perspective -- it characterizes him as optimistic, sympathetic, somebody we're excited to root for.
                              What a stark contrast between the two families, well done.

Kinda funny that she seems more democratic bc Republicans were the first abolitionists ya know?

I’m confused cause he was winking and smiling at her before
                              I like this contrast, everything tells a story about a normal family on Christmas morning, yet there is something underlying going on here...
                              I am very intrigued.
