Coming in the summer of 2019
White Oak River
In 1860’s North Carolina, both Caroline and John come from generations of wealthy plantation and slave owners. Caroline is content with being served. John wants to serve others, follow his heart and become a preacher. He turns his back on his family’s wealth and their peculiar institution of slavery. To marry John, Caroline must leave her genteel life, which she finds is much easier than letting go of her bigotry. After marriage, discovered family secrets reveal her hidden ancestry and soon the Civil War raging mirrors John and Caroline’s lives, not only leaving the nation in despair, but their marriage as well. Will their love find deeper roots in forgiveness and acceptance?
This dramatic story of love, faith, family bonds, and discrimination is based on true events of the author’s third-great grandparents.
