Product description

Review

5 stars, crowned heart
"The author did an excellent job researching the era of slavery, the history of plantation houses, even the manner in which people spoke back then. The characters, in particular Euan and Abigail, are fleshed out and three dimensional, acting like real people would and struggling with real issues. The injustice and cruelty of slavery, and the narrow-minded ways people tried to rationalize this, are the red threads running throughout the book, and provide an interesting backdrop for the characters' relationships. "A Shackled Inheritance" is not only entertaining, but provides the reader with a lot of new information and research while keeping a fast pace without the dreaded "info dump". A heart-wrenching love story, Abigail and Euan's story is one for the ages!"
InD'tale magazine

"Madeleine McDonald has penned this interesting novel to embellish the plight of single women of limited means during the Regency era. Abigail was required to keep house for her widowed father, with minimal communication. He was happy to contribute money to other causes, but despised spending it on his daughter’s education and wardrobe. Hence, Abigail was relegated to spinsterhood. Although slavery was abolished in Britain, it was practiced with vigor on plantations in the colonies, even by her father, a respectable member of the Kirk. Only a few, like Euan, questioned such methods. However, the fortitude Abigail displays in defying these norms, by taking on her deceased father’s business matters, and sailing to a Caribbean island, stirs our imagination."
