Storm Clouds Rolling In by Ginny Dye


Storm Clouds Rolling In by Ginny Dye covers the period of 1860-1861 and is told from the point of view of a Virginian plantation owner's daughter who is struggling with the idea of slavery and begins to question everything she has grown up believing. The storm clouds precede the rumblings of civil war which are prevalent everywhere. Although her dream is to become a doctor and leave the plantation, attending a college in the North, she becomes burdened with running the Cromwell Plantation in her father's absence and also her dilemma of running it as her father did or turning a blind eye at the slaves who are involved in the Underground Railroad.

This is the first book in the Bregdan Chronicles.

Ms. Dye states in her biography and several posts online, that she is a very private person and there seems to be very little about her except that she is a prolific writer
