Product Description

In England, Grace learns from a former friend that her husband is Cabeto is in America on a South Carolina plantation. Grace dons a sailor's disguise ansd signs the manifest of the only ship headed for America--a detestable slave ship. But the voyage is barely underway when her secret is discovered. Immediately, she is locked up in the hold.

Upon arrival on the American coast, Grace is put on the auction block where she is offered at a premium price as a prized house slave. She is bought immediately. But as a slave, Grace has a fatal flaw: she can read. When her owner catches her with a book, he beats her and sells her cheaply to a man of moderate means who is passing through on his way to georgia. As the plantation disappears into the distance, so do all her hopes of finding Cabeto.

Publisher's Description

Grace in Africa is a sweeping historical three-part saga of slavery and freedom that takes the reader from an island off the west coast of Africa to Southern plantations and finally on to Canada.

All her life, Grace Winslow, the daughter of a mixed marriage between an English sea captain and an African princess, has been forbidden to ever approach Zulina, the fortress that juts out into the sea off the African coast. In book 1, when she escapes the family compound to avoid an odious betrothal, she is swept up in a slave revolt.

As the truth about Zulina unfolds, Grace begins to grasp the brutality and ferocity of the family business—the capture and trade of slaves. Held for ransom, viciously maimed by a runaway slave, and threatened with death, Grace is finally jerked into reality when her parents leave her to die rather than negotiate with the slaves. Grace sympathizes with the plight of the captives, and she is genuinely moved by the African Cabeto’s passion, determination, and willingness to sacrifice anything, including his own life, for his people’s freedom.

With much of the island in flames, and the slaves freed, Grace is abandoned by her parents. Where shall she go? Her old nursemaid Mama Muco, opens a missionary Bible that she has managed to save and points to Isaiah 61: “The Lord has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound…to give unto them garlands of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning.”

It’s a new beginning for Grace.

    As I said in my other review, this is a great trilogy and if you read them you should read them in order. This is a great story of Grace, a girl of mixed parentage who's parents deal in the slave trade. To encourage you to keep reading, she does find her husband in this story. There is sadness, friendship, fear, relief, its a good story that ends to fast.

    I have read all three. God triumphs over all and the storyline reinforces it. It is about more than slavery. It is about how God can be trusted to bring you through even when it appears impossible.

    I was excited to find an end to the devastation of separation and enjoyed finding expressions of God's faithfulness and provision and protection throughout.

    The final book in this series was well worth the wait! It captures a tremendous blemish in our history (that unfortunately still exists in some countries)! The author captures the struggle in government to abolish slavery without detracting from the difficult journey Grace makes from London to be reunited with her husband, who was sold into slavery in the US. While painting a sad picture of the lives of those sold into slavery, there is always a frame of hope surrounding it, because of the determination of a few to end this abomination. If you're looking for a series that will touch you, start with the first book and continue on, it will leave an indelible print on your heart.
