WHEN THE LAST MOON RISES
THE TIME RETURNS, BOOK 3
Raising mixed children in a rural community in the 1970s brings new challenges to Natalie and Tony’s relationship. The first white woman to marry a black man in their small town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, they are up against generations of ingrained beliefs on the separation of the races. In fact, the Ku Klux Klan is still alive and making its presence known.
Natalie’s study of local history reveals just how sordid and complicated the legacy of slavery is in her own backyard. In the 1800s, on the border between Maryland and Delaware, there arose a gang who captured free blacks and fugitive slaves and sold them into the Deep South. Her fifth great-grandfather had established Dogwood Hall during this same era. As she delves deeper into family research, she enters a new maze of speculation about her ancestors’ lives.
Once again, the past and the present intersect in the stories of Adelaide and Natalie Winslow, two women separated by time, though bound by blood and their shared belief in the equality of all mankind.
