Doctor Thomas Applegate was on the brink of financial ruin. His vices, gambling and drinking, played their part and made him the perfect pawn in Jules Signet's scheme. It was a time of racial intolerance, and people openly expressed their small minded thoughts. Signet not only shared this viewpoint, but planned to exploit it to his gain. When his plan succeeds, he realises its true potential, and casts his powerful net far and wide. Embark on an emotional journey of manipulation, strategy, and change in Eddie Price's One Drop--A Slave!
One Drop--A Slave! is an engrossing and deep read filled with vibrant settings and a rich history, remaining true to the era in which it is set. The characters are amazingly and believably constructed, so much so that they could be based on real people, and even real events. This book was a thrill to read. Hardships, weaknesses, plans, manipulation, exploitation, abuse of power and knowledge are but a few veins of a story every bit as complex as life itself. The characters you meet are rich, developed, and continue to be shaped as the plot progresses, and morals and regrets are pitted against fear and consequences. There are some evils, some actions that need to be stopped, and watching the characters’ epic and challenging voyages and their own personal journeys is truly a pleasure to experience.
Eddie Price’s writing will surround and envelop you, drawing you into the pages, making it difficult to tear yourself away from the book. It's a long book, just the way I like them, but I never noticed the length as I was reading, because there's so much to explore and enjoy within this gripping plot that the pages sail by. Even the most casual reader won't notice the length as they are whisked away across land and sea. Prepare to be emotionally stirred in every way imaginable.
