The Candle Star

(Divided Decade Collection)

By Michelle Isenhoff

Runaways hidden in the barn, slave catchers housed in the hotel, and Emily squeezed between two very different loyalties.

After a tantrum, Emily Preston is shipped from her plantation home to her inn-keeping uncle in Detroit. There she meets Malachi, son of freed slaves, who challenges many ideas she grew up believing. But when Emily stumbles upon two runaways hidden in her uncle’s barn, she finds that old ways die hard. And Mr. Burrows, the charming Southern slave catcher, is only yards away, lodged in the hotel.
