About the Pocket Full of Seeds Trilogy
Libertas is a love story rising from the despair of slavery. Fredericka is the daughter of a White plantation owner and his Black house slave. Horace is a literate slave companion to the son of a New York hotel baron.
This first book in the Pocket Full of Seeds Trilogy follows their flight for freedom through nineteenth-century America. It was a time when runaway slaves were hunted, steamships sailed around the Horn to San Francisco, horse-tugged boats navigated the Erie Canal, a midnight tsunami struck Buffalo, Mormons sought a new Zion, and wagon trains lumbered across a continent littered with unmarked graves. Most of all, this is a story driven by an unquenchable thirst for libertas.
Libertas achieved wide recognition, including runner-up Book of the Year through the Historical Fiction Company, a Best Book Award finalist through the American Book Fest, a gold medal from Reader's Choice and was a finalist for the Eric Hoffer Award.
