In this fifth installment of the bestselling Mail Order Bride series, two young couples seek freedom and love amidst slavery-rich Charleston, South Carolina. When nineteen-year-old Benjamin arrives from South Africa, he is scheduled to be sold into slavery -- but is set free by a Christian who takes him in as a paid worker. The man's son, Dan Johnson, befriends Benjamin, and the two make plans to start a cattle ranch in Texas. With bold dreams and the support and courage of their mail order brides, they struggle against bigotry and hatred to find their dream of happiness.
