Mornin' Star Risin' is a fascinating step back in time to the antebellum South, where two cultures forged a peculiar existence in a country struggling to find its soul. It is the story of the Gullah slaves.

In their motherland they were often sons and daughters of nobility, African queens and chieftain. In this land, however, these proud people were stripped of their culture and dignity and reduced to the level of livestock.

Mornin' Star Risin' is a fascinating step back in time to the antebellum South, where two cultures forged a peculiar existence in a country struggling to find its soul.

It is the story of the Gullah slaves--their rich language, their loves, their dreams, their superstitions, and their childlike faith in God who loved them and would one day set them free.

It is also the story of their white owners and the genuine affection that sometimes developed between master and slave.

With rare literary artistry, author Jean Holmes paints word pictures of this bygone era that will leave both tender and haunting images on the reader's heart. Mornin' Star Risin' introduces us to a world we would rather, but dare never, forget.
