Broken Life--A Fight for Forever is a must read for historians, romanticists, adventurers... and you!
This is a romantic tale of steamy passion and boiling fervor, which also wraps itself in the arms of virtually unexplored history. Moreover, this zeal-filled story crosses time-lines, racial lines, cultural lines as well as the vast Atlantic. From generation to generation to generation, a special lineage of rare love is interrupted, entwined lives are broken, and fragile dreams are shattered because of an unrelenting curse rooted in Africa. Yet, the rigorous fight to break the curse's menacing grip steadily climaxes as young Bethel gains wisdom through her visions as well as the truths spoken from her father's reluctant tongue and the cherished wooden box, a treasured but mysterious heirloom, which connects Bethel to both the curse and a counter to the same. Upon possessing the box, Bethel discovers the nearly elusive path to victory. Through a series of visions, which first take her to the mid 1800's, she sees the way...
Bethel first envisions Marguerite; French-born; Classy and elite; Stunningly beautiful; and Exceptionally intelligent. At the young age of eighteen, Marguerite is her father's pride and his joy. Jean-Pierre dotes on Marguerite and sends her on holiday to the new country of America. He has entrusted Marguerite's care to Julia. Julia is a surrogate mother who reared Marguerite from birth. She gladly filled the void when Marguerite's mother sacrificed her own life while birthing her daughter.
Nearly as soon as her feet touch American soil, Marguerite's delicate, genteel life changes drastically. Unbelievably so, she first meets her future husband, Thomas, and, indeed, finds herself married to him in a day's time. This chance meeting becomes the beginning of a chain of events. The very day Marguerite arrives in America, she suddenly becomes alone when Julia suddenly passes away. Jubilation and excitement give way to emotional turmoil, which she never anticipated, particularly on this journey. Thankfully, Thomas comes to her rescue and offers security and protection through marriage, even though subtle traces of Negroid blood peek through her fine features--a recipe for trouble in the zenith of American slavery. However, Thomas has a veil of secrecy of his own, one of which young Marguerite is totally unaware. To reveal his clandestine activities at the inception of their union would endanger them both.
By horse and carriage and riverboat, their adventure in America includes meeting the brother of Thomas (and the woman that is surprisingly his wife), the buying of slaves as well as brilliant land purchases. The whirlwind adventure of Thomas & Marguerite intensifies their rich love, and the birth of their baby.
Visions of Marguerite's broken life supply incentive for Bethel to fight for forever...
