The Prodigy Slave, book one: Journey To Winter Garden
Lily, a young girl born with a god given gift in the field of music was unfortunately born a slave. Being sold at an auction to the Adams by her own father, she suffered from a very young age. Playing the piano was her only escape from her trauma of past pains. She was disgusted by the slave traders and slave owners who chose money over morality.
James Adams, her master's youngest son was her only best friend. They spent all evening together strengthening their friendship in secret...until one day her master found out their interaction and put an end to it. After a wait of six long years James returned home from college, being a man with beauty and brains. Upon realizing Lily's amazing talent he wanted to fight hard to give her a life she deserved even if it meant risking his. Through her fingertips, he believed that Lily had the potential to subdue the ill-fated morals of the society.
In their struggle towards freedom, Lily finds a world with warmth and comfort, a world with hope and redemption, a love that ceases to be lawful despite it being true. In her fight against slavery she inspires and changes the life of people surrounding her. Will the odds be in her favour or does she have to go back to being treated like an animal?
This amazing story by Londyn Skye brings to light the fact that world should look beyond status and accept people just for the way they are. There is no escaping the certainty that people whatsoever may be their race should be treated with the respect they deserve simply for the fact that they too are humans. The author strongly puts forward the statement that Negroes are far more worthy than a life of oppression.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 because the author has done a great job entertaining the reader with pretty little jokes and heart throbbing incidents. This book is not recommended for kids as it contains foul language and some intense romance.
