Chained to Love – The Dark side of Slavery
Sometimes when you're treated inhumanely you lose your humanity! In 1811 on a Mississippi plantation where she was enslaved, MaDea was hung. She lived to tell about it. Those who hung her didn't! Follow her story and that of the generations that came after on Martria Del Sol and Sugar Hill Plantation. This is a family saga. Travel with them as they cross the oceans and pass through many nations of this planet, mixing cultures and races that culminate in a multiracial melting pot; living, loving and dying while trying to maintain their humanity.
About Toni Mariani (Union, South Carolina Author)
This series, The Mississippi Plantation Series is my first published work. I completed the series with a cookbook, MaDea's Plantation Cookbook-Recipes From the Old South. This book is dedicated to the memory of my paternal great grandmother, Lilli Miller who spoke in a whisper. I never heard the reason why, so I had to come up with a story from my own imaginings, from what I know of human nature.
After completing my series I found out from my mother's sister, one half of our DNA shows that we are from most nations of this planet, including 15% Scandinavian/Vikings. We live, love and die, equal to all, just as my characters do.
Since January of this year, I have written seven books, including a memoir about my two sons who are asleep in the grave.
I was born in St. Louis Missouri, so it follows that I should choose it as my hometown, though I live in Sheboygan Wisconsin.
