Heaven’s Daughter is the story of an unlikely trio inexplicably united during the Civil War. Noni, resilient and wise, has endured the hardship of being ripped from her African home. She lives an unimagineable life of slavery in the American South. When her daughter, Efuru, is threatened they run away. Deep in a North Carolina forest they meet
Abby, a northern white girl who has just escaped her kidnapper, a Confederate soldier. Abby and Efuru become fast friends. Journey with the girls as they grow, struggling with family relationships, prejudice and dysfunction. Watch their relationship change through war, mistakes, betrayal and love.
Heaven’s Daughter invites us to examine how we work to deceive ourselves–the resulting consequences–and how forgiveness helps us heal.
“Heaven’s Daughter” has been named a finalist in the New Mexico/Arizona 2012 Book Awards.
Winners will be announced on November 16, 2012.
