The Wedding Gift, by Marlen Suyapa Bodden: Couldn't put this book down. Southern historical fiction.
The Wedding Gift - When wealthy plantation owner Cornelius Allen marries off his daughter Clarissa, he presents her with a wedding gift: a young slave woman called Sarah. It just so happens that Sarah is Allen’s daughter as well, the product of a long-term sexual relationship with his slave Emmeline.
The Wedding Gift - Can't wait to read. On my to read list right after The Help. Both of them on my book shelf just teasing me. lol.
Excellent read. Personally inspiring. Have three of her books and all three are great reads.
