Once in a Blood Moon
Heaven Hill Plantation, upriver from Georgetown, South Carolina, 1807.
Sixteen-year-old Alexandra Degambia is the daughter of a wealthy African American planter and a social-climbing mother who can pass for white. Balancing on the tightrope between girlhood and the complicated adult world can be treacherous. Alexandra yearns to establish her own place in the world. She assumes her talent and her family's wealth can pave the way. However, her life becomes a nightmare when her mother dies and her father is murdered by racist officials eager to seize Heaven Hill for their own.
Sometimes destiny has its own plans.
