Philippe Clavelle has been hired by Bridget’s parents as an indentured servant on their plantation. Though they are both of noble birth, Philippe must now repay the cost of bringing his family to America. The duties on the Barrington Plantation provide the means to erase that debt. Though Philippe and Bridget see something in each other that no one else does especially their parents, the disparity in their stations now only spotlights the differences between them.
Though this is the first book I have read by Parson’s the stunning detail of setting, characters, and events flood the fertile imagination placing readers amidst the plot as they turn each page. I am looking forward to “rescuing” this author’s previous novels from this series from my TBR soon. I’m sure there will be connections and carry over from the earlier Darkness to Light novels though this one read like a stand-alone title. (ISBN#9781595546289, 352pp, $14.99)
