Trouble the Water : A NovelBook - 2018
Abigail Milton was born into the British middle class, but her debt-ridden parents send her to Charleston, S.C. to live off the charity of their old friend, Douglas Elling. The man her parents raved about is a disagreeable widower who wants little to do with her, and relegates her care to a governess. When she overhears Elling planning the escape of a local slave, Abby's attempts to learn more about abolition initiate a circuitous dance of secrets and trust.
