A Betrayal of Freedom (Legacy #3) (Paperback)
Young and exuberant, Mary Davies stubbornly left her home in England against her father's wishes to seek a life of opportunity in the colonies. There, lonely and miserable with nothing turned out as planned, she forfeited her freedom when she found a forbidden love in the arms of Domingo, a slave.
Rose had lived a pampered life in a royal palace in India until the palace was overthrown and she was taken and sold as a slave in the American colonies. Proud but afraid, she fought against her owner, Henry Darnall, until he desperately turned to Mary with a nasty deal that put the fate of the two women at odds.
To unite her family, Mary agreed to the cruel bargain and found the beauty of love and friendship with Rose. Together, Mary and Rose formed a bond of sisterhood to save each other but when Mary discovered that only the death of her husband could free her, the shock of it claimed her life, leaving her daughter to be raised as a slave by Rose.
Three generations later, when help was offered by William Dove, the sound of freedom could not be ignored, even if it took rewriting history to accomplish it.
This is the true story of two unique women who forged a family of faith, courage, and dignity even through the violence of slavery and human possession. Through them, a heritage was formed where nothing was as it seemed, and the gift of understanding and forgiveness was their legacy.
