Chapter 1

September 1854

Hamilton Plantation

Timrod County, South Carolina

Anne Hamilton heard everything I said; I knew it, could feel it in my bones and sensed it in the way she stared at me as if she wanted to say something though she never did. Question was, what she would do with that information, information that needed to be protected no matter the cost. They talked of killing her, and Lord knows they would too. There would be no stopping them either, not that I would try.
