Cast Away Stones
by Katherine Youngblood
Louisiana, 1848. Catarine, determined and decisive, left her beautiful family home, Magnolia Plantation, ensconced on the banks of the Mississippi River. What danger led her to leave abruptly, to live a life disguised on the streets of New Orleans, only to be rescued by the captivating Daria Morinay, a wealthy free woman of color?
The two young women, from vastly different backgrounds, forge a loyal friendship unlikely to be shaken until Daria discovers Catarine’s hidden secret and the true reason she had run away. Cast Away Stones, the first book in the series, is about friendships worth dying for, that cross time and racial boundaries, and speak to humanity today.
