Beneath the Blackberry Moon Part 3: the Ebony Cloak: by April Gardner


The Ebony Cloak, part 3 of the Beneath the Blackberry Moon,  is a  wonderful conclusion to this series.  Gardner has a way of making her characters come to life and makes you feel like you are there in the woods, tent, fort or the desolate burned out Mims fort, observing all that transpires. I loved viewing history from the eyes of the writer  ……….part three continues the saga of Adela, Totka, and Phillip. Also introduces us to Milly , a daughter of a white lady and part black slave , whose cruel step father sold her into slavery. She escapes a cruel master with the help of friend and fellow slave, Isum, who loves her.  Adela and Totka  are reunited after much pain and lies that have kept them apart for so long…….This book focuses more on Phillip and the slave girl…..there is much sadness, pain , suspicions, deceit, but through the  horrors of the war and Indians and the black Fort, God is still working to bring his truth to all races, white, black and Indian. All is well that ends well……loved this book.  My thanks to the author for the privilege to read and review.
