My Thoughts.

“When God sends a present, it is always right”

Field’s and Delany’s relationship was a very unique one. Slave and freeborn. And I loved the way the author illustrated how every man is created in the image of God and is not to be owned or sold.
I greatly admired how she rose from slave to the mistress of her own home. It shows how when you put your mind to a worthy cause you succeed. I like her uniquely owned business. Delany’s efforts in the war were unmatched. I loved the dignity and boldness she exhibited.
For a while Field couldn’t see pass her indenture but i love how time and Godly influence changed his mind. It was so admirable the risks he took for what he believed in.

Through war and fighting for what they believed in, this book brings a wonderful, intrigue and action filled tale of love, sacrifice and determination.

I received a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.

More From Izzy.

Hello! My name is Izzy James. My new book is The Shopkeeper’s Widow. It’s about freedom and second chances. I learned quite a bit of history while researching and writing this book. Did you know that the first showers began to appear in the early 1760’s? I gave Delany one of them in Shopkeeper’s just for fun. It is not likely she would have had a shower at that time, but it is fiction and as such I thought it would be a fun detail to add. We do know that some people did rig up for themselves a semblance of a daily shower by using a bucket full of water suspended above them.


To celebrate her tour, Izzy is giving away the grand prize package of a a book, a can of tea and an Ingenuitea teapot!!
