Excerpt from; “Wilmington Manor" ...
"Wilmington Manor dares to expose one of history's untold love stories. When Andrew, Wilmington’s heir, is forced to return home to take over the family business after graduating from Virginia Military Institute, he purchases Edward, a slave. The two begin a journey into the truly forbidden, developing a relationship that could result in arrest and death. In the face of this danger, they must also confront entanglements with Andrew's social climbing mother, vindictive sister, senile father, the Civil War, and Edward's desire for freedom. They cling to threads of hope offered by voodoo spells cast by an enslaved priestess, understanding offered from the Madame of a high-end bordello, and the dim promise of escape on the Underground Railroad. The price of freedom is high and may ultimately result in isolation."
