Libertas is a love story rising from the despair of slavery. Fredericka is the daughter of a White plantation owner and his Black house slave. Horace is a literate slave-companion to the son of a New York hotel baron.

This first book in the Pocket Full of Seeds Trilogy follows their flight for freedom through nineteenth-century America. It was a time when runaway slaves were hunted, steamships sailed around the Horn to San Francisco, horse-tugged boats navigated the Erie Canal, a midnight tsunami struck Buffalo, Mormons sought a new Zion, and wagon trains lumbered across a continent littered with unmarked graves. Most of all, this is a story driven by an unquenchable thirst for libertas.

What this author said about working with us...

Professional, personal, and priority service. This is my third project with Luminare Press and my books and audiobooks are as professional as they come. When asked, people are surprised that my books are self-published. The cover art is superb and the editing and layout is first class. My books are up on Amazon and Kindle and thank goodness, I didn’t have to figure any of that out! I highly recommend Luminare to any author who wants exceptional service at an affordable price.
