Bloodlines (A Dying Truth Exposed, Book One) by Marcus Abston

A gripping and detailed historical, with plenty of intrigue…

A young slave struggles to navigate the ups and downs of her difficult life in Abston’s gripping historical. As a slave on the Browns’s cotton plantation in Mississippi, the life for the young and headstrong Annabelle has always been difficult. But when she turns sixteen, Mr. Brown’s unsavory interest forces Annabelle to leave her family and plantation behind and run away. Will she be able to find a safe life? Abston tells the story over the span of many years and skillfully interweaves his protagonists’ predicaments and affecting backstories into the main storyline. He skillfully portrays Annabelle’s evolving worldview as years pass, integrating her personal story into the affecting narrative. The tension stays ripe, with plenty of twists and turns, and a dash of otherworldly adds to the intrigue. Abston’s fascinating period detail brings the era to life, with all its cruelties and violence against Black slaves, race and class disparities, and gender discrimination. This is a winner.
