She’s so lucky, most people wouldn’t have the luxury of that kind of protection for themselves and their family

Thank you for this! I’m excited to read it! It’s great to see us in historical fiction that’s pre-Atlantic slave trade (from what I can tell thus far), and/or showing us in narratives we’re usually erased from
Shes soo pretty. The first character I can relate to the hair and etc.

Hey, I mean this in the least offensive way , but this is not a nice way of writing.  You have an awesome story but your writing style isn't polished enough.  I think you could turn your book into a movie even,  if you Polish your writing .
