About this item
A young Irish orphan becomes an indentured servant at a tobacco plantation in antebellum Virginia in Kathleen Grissom's compelling debut novel. Young Lavinia finds herself caught between two worlds as she works and lives alongside the kitchen slaves but is isolated by her white skin. After she marries, as a teenager, the plantation master's brutish son, the racial conflicts flare up into violence.
Gone with the Wind is turned inside out in this tragic, page-turning novel in which a white indentured servant girl lives and works with black slaves.
