Baker & Taylor
After an accident kills her husband, Abigail Banes Allyn becomes the sole proprietor of their Georgia rice plantation and its slaves in the antebellum South, sides with the abolitionists, and finds new love with the plantation's handsome overseer

McMillan Palgrave
Bostonian Abby Banes thought marrying much older Eli Allyn would be a romantic dream: he would make her the pampered mistress of a plantation on Georgia's glorious seacoast. But she wasn't prepared for the realities of slavery or aching loneliness. And when she finally reached out in friendship to her housekeeper Rosa Moon, she found a lifeline during the tragedy that made her a widow. Now, in a land being pulled apart by turmoil and change, Abby defies Southern tradition to run the plantation alone and to embrace a people's call for freedom. And she never expects the intense emotion that draws her to another man...or to be struck by a passion, fierce as lightning, that knows no bounds...

& Taylor

When her husband's fatal accident leaves her the sole proprietor of their rice plantation, Abigail Allyn forges a new identity as a feminist before her time and an abolitionist before there is a way to free slaves. Reprint.
