In this story we follow the saga of Bascom family, from 1832 up though the life of the great grandson, Tobias Bascom. You will experience life on a Georgia plantation through the eyes and emotions of the slaves. Although Master Stewart prided himself on being a righteous owner, the struggle of slave-life on the Stewart Plantation was anything but righteous. After the war, slaves struggled to become masters of their own destiny during the post-war reconstruction. Emancipation did not really bring freedom. Each emancipated slave had to learn how to plan, dream, and make decisions; everything forbidden to slaves.
The fictional Stewart Plantation in Atlanta, Georgia plays a key role in the lives of Susan and Lisa Miller. Years before either girl even knew of its existence, God was at work putting His Plan into motion.
