When God Gives Us Spring .........

One of my novellas titled "When God Gives Us Spring" is free today only in the Kindle Store.

Michael Custis Washington is a young black slave living on a cotton plantation in the Province of Virginia. He was born in 1802. Left an orphan a...t the age of five he is taken into the big house by his master, Alfred Gordon, to be trained as a house servant. While in this house he suffers severe emotional and sexual abuse. When he finally runs away with his wife Lucinda he is helped by the Quakers. Through the Underground Railway they reach the Elgin Settlement in Ontario, Canada. Freedom is his at last. But when the American Civil War breaks out in 1861 Michael chooses to join the Union Army. He works his way back to Virginia. Is he seeking justice or vengeance?

"God Gives Us Spring" is a novella that required much research before I even began to put pen to paper. I learned much about the history of slavery in early America and also about the role of the Quakers in assisting slaves into Canada via the Underground Railway. I very much enjoyed writing God Gives Us Spring and I hope you will enjoy the story.
