Dana Vacca (danavacca) | 2 comments Hi,
I just recently published a book, FREEDOM CALLING, that is historical fiction with a full-fledged romance knitted into the plot of the story. I think it fits well in your genre preference. It is about the coming of age of a young slave girl. Romance unfolds within the main thread of the historical novel's theme.

This page-turning drama is packed with action, emotion, romance and tumultuous adventure, and is vibrantly painted with powerful characters, vivid imagery and factual details of the Civil War era. In the midst of the Civil War, runaway slaves Daisy Green and her daughter, Celia, attempt a nearly infallible but risky plan to escape from their Southern plantation and stow away on a sailing ship headed north. They will do whatever they must to be free. The cruelties of slavery that have broken Daisy's body have only reinforced her steadfast will to get her daughter to freedom. Mother and daughter are soon separated, and everything changes. Although their strong bond, their faith in God and in each other endures, their hearts are torn by desperation, sorrow, and fear. A perilous sea voyage, the strange, fearsome Dismal Swamp, and the dangerous, embattled Confederate South present fierce challenges to Daisy and Celia in their courageous struggle to find liberty and happiness. Help and danger come from unexpected places. Emotional, fast-paced, exciting, and compelling, their incredible search for freedom becomes a fight for life and a test of love. Their journeys take them to heights of happiness and plunge them to depths of despair - and back again. FREEDOM CALLS to these unforgettable heroines, Daisy and Celia. Will they find freedom,… and each other?

Hope you might consider my book for discussion.

Thank you,
Dana Vacca
