Once upon a time Synthia James was in love with her boss Edison Pike. Over the years he has changed into a monster using fear and brutality to control everything she does. What he has forced her to do has changed her forever.
The young mixed race girl she has brought up is as much a daughter to her as one from her body would have been. She is also her weak spot.
This is an exciting story set just after the American civil war. Many people are using very underhanded means to get very rich. In this

Haven has done it again! OMG where do I begin with this review. I loved it because it is written after The American Civil War and the setting is lovely. I love how Haven described things and the way they talked was amazing. Plus Savannah Georgia is my favorite place I want to go visit. I love the history of it and the stories that come from there are amazing.

We meet Synthia, Edison, and Salis. Synthia is in a relationship with Edison and she wants out. He is not who he used to be and he has chan

It's 1871 in Savannah, Georgia. Synthia James is stuck in a relationship with a man she once loved, but due to greed and corruption, now despises. When he tries to force the young housemaid, a girl Synthia loves like a daughter, to kill a man, she commits the heinous act herself in order to protect the girl.

Now he wants another man dead. This time a stranger who ignites a passion she once thought was lost.

Synthia must now decide on how far she will go in order to keep her daughter safe.

A slowly growing darkness is invading Synthia’s life. The characters are fun to watch and the story flows naturally. My emotions got wrapped up in their life and I was at the edge of my seat for every twist. My favorite part was the darkness that wrapped so intricately through the story. Desperately seeking a better life what would you do?
