The Whistle Walk by Stephenia McGee

Send to Kindle

Civil War tears the nation apart, but amid the struggle two women discover they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible…

Ruth lost her ability to breathe. How foolish she’d been. She’d hated people for making up their minds about her when they knew nothing of her soul. Yet she’d done the very same thing. Without thought she grabbed the woman who’d bought her as if she were worth nothing more than livestock and pulled her close.

Mrs. Harper stiffened and then returned the embrace sobs wracking her body. Ruth held her and prayed. What did God see? Slave and master? Or two of his daughters hurt by a world they couldn’t control…

The Whistle Walk

The Whistle Walk
A Mississippi Plantation: Civil War pits country men against one another and tears a nation asunder. Life and death are held in the balance where everyone is a slave to something.

One is born free, yet lives as a soul in bondage…

Lydia Harper never intended to purchase a slave. But when she witnesses a woman being beaten in the street, all her pretenses begin to unravel. A bride to a man she barely knows and bound by her secrets, Lydia will risk everything to save a stranger. Amid the War Between the States, the mistress of Ironwood faces the battles in her own heart and discovers strength in a way she never imagined.

The other is born to serve, yet holds the spirit of freedom…

Ruth, standing on the threshold of desperation, has lost everything she holds dear. After being pulled from the dirt, she is no longer a field hand but the personal maid to the lady of Ironwood. Ruth soon realizes adversity pays no mind to the color of skin. When propriety slips, she discovers they have more in common than she dreamed possible. In a time when fear brings the South to its knees, two women will forge a friendship in the fires of redemption and thrust Ironwood into a new future – where the battle for freedom has merely begun.
