Publisher's Summary

Nicolette Chamard, a woman of color in the most color-conscious city in the world, rejoices when the Union Army marches into New Orleans. At last her people will be free, and even knowing her collaboration with the Union will put her in danger, she means to help make it happen.

Marcel Chamard, Nicolette's privileged white half-brother, surveys the same parade and sees conquerors, not liberators. If the Union wins the war, it will mean the end of the slave-holding culture, the end of wealth and ease. Marcel wants nothing to change, not the family's rich cane plantation, not the life he plans with his lovely white bride, and not the life he lives with his beloved colored mistress and their two sons.

Finnian McKee, a Union Army officer, comes from a family of abolitionists. He is determined to do his small part to make the ideal of freedom a reality for all. When he meets the fascinating Nicolette Chamard, he is too new to New Orleans to recognize that though she is light-skinned, she is by Louisiana standards a Negress. Torn apart by the war and by a culture that forbids their union, his heart's desire is to find love with this woman that will transcend the bonds of race.

best of three

I have nenjoyed the first three books in this series very much.💖 This book #3 just went to a deeper place. I cared very much for the characters and I felt the author did too. The heartbreaking history of this period in our country was handled without overwhelming the reader with politics and circumstances but with a clear purpose of moving the story line forward and consideration for the integrity of the characters.

Outstanding

I was not aware of the dynamics of slavery in Louisiana for my family is from NC. In my family the mulatto (Indian & while) was where the interracial relations began and none... of the stories passed down mentions ANY type of love. There never seem to be the love among the combined families. However, regardless of the somewhat kind treatment of the slave women... they were STILL owned property. In the best situations... the slave women children seem to be a class above their mothers. However, I was surprised abt Fin’s family willing to accept his mulatto wife, when even in 2018 Boston is NOT considered most friendly African American state :/ which is why I gave 4*.
