Publisher's Summary

Daniel and Lori love each other, yet to live as one in 1856, they must escape from the unyielding society that imprisons them. Lori was born a slave in North Carolina, yet by chance was raised alongside Daniel in a wealthy abolitionist household.

The sudden death of Daniel's mother catapults Lori back into bondage. Relegated to chattel on a rice plantation, Lori lives in constant fear under the tormenting scrutiny of Daniel's wretched aunt.

After Daniel fails to convince his relatives to free Lori, he is compelled to devise a daring escape. Although a life-threatening endeavor for both of them, Lori's freedom is priceless to Daniel, and he's willing to pay such a price for her love.

    Story
    "Over Done"
    Would you try another book from Maria McKenzie and/or Madison Vaughn?

    No. I feel this book over describes or repeats character details and is to "preachy."


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most interesting is the method of escape from the plantation. Least interesting is the repetitive descriptions of the characters anxieties.


    What does Madison Vaughn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The personality of the characters is expressed well by the performance


    Was Escape worth the listening time?

    If I had not been in the car for several hours I would not have finished the book. At home I definitely would have returned it to Audible within the first 3 hours of listening.


    Any additional comments?

    The storyline is interesting and I stuck with with the book by fast forwarding many times. I would not waste my time or money on the next two books in the trilogy.

    "Very good"

    I truly enjoyed this book very. I have listened to several slave books and this was pretty good. I enjoyed all of the characters except for spoiled daughter and Daniel crazy aunt. I would recommend this book.

    Story
    "Get Swept Away"

    Lori thinks of her slavery as a technicality, but when her benevolent owner dies, she believes she must flee everything she knows, including Daniel, her beloved (white) companion since childhood, if she is to obtain her freedom. This suspenseful tale of the persistence of true love was skillfully narrated and will sweep you away.
