Dark Clouds over Alabama Publisher's summary

The year is 1853. The place is Twin Oaks Plantation, Autauga County, Alabama. Twenty-one-year-old Obadiah Bradford's life is transformed forever when he accompanies his father to purchase a new household servant in nearby Selma. Obadiah is deeply affected by his immediate attraction and intense feelings for Penelope, the beautiful mixed-race daughter who is his family's new servant. These feelings will eventually present some of the greatest challenges in his and Penelope's lives.

With the threat of civil war looming on the horizon, Dark Clouds Over Alabama is the heart-wrenching story of Obadiah, his forbidden love for Penelope, his struggles with the immorality of slavery, his service in the Confederate Army's medical corps, and how he overcomes every challenge by adhering to his traditional values, Christian beliefs, and deep faith in God. It is a story of love, life, hope, commitment, politics, tragedy, and triumph in the Old South that is perfect for anyone interested in this fascinating chapter in American history.
