I borrowed this book from my mother-in-law, who read it and enjoyed it. It's part of a series, but I think each book can probably stand on its own. This is the story of a Creole family in New Orleans in the early 1800's, and the story of a young slave girl that they buy. Here's the product review at stated at Amazon:

I enjoyed this book. At first I wasn't sure if I'd get into it because Damita is sooo spoiled and selfish. Thankfully, it follows several characters and has a great redemptive story. It may have dragged a little the last 70 pages or so but I liked the characters enough to be glad I didn't have to say goodbye quite yet.

Gilbert Morris has done it again! This is a great book, although I wasn't too much of a fan of the characterization of his main character Damita Salvedo y Madriaga. Damita, a featured character in Morris' The Exiles, is now a young woman with aspirations of her own and a desire to own a slave. Damita begs her parents to buy her a slave, and when she gets what she wants, the girl is treated horribly. But Damita's views will change when tragedy strikes her family.
