Raised in a tribe of street urchins, Maddie Grande was taught to be a thief and beggar on the streets of New Orleans. But Maddie doesn’t know her real name or where she came from. Raised by Dexter Grande, Maddie and her twin “brothers” have recently left New Orleans and moved to the bayou. The twins are rarely there, but Maddie has come to love the swamp. She has learned to fish and trap and sell pelts at the local mercantile.

Maddie longs to change her life but knows that her brothers will never give up their lawless ways. When they kidnap the daughter of a wealthy carpetbagger, the twins force Maddie to hide the precocious eight-year-old while they return to New Orleans to wait for notice of a reward.

Pinkerton agent Tom Abbott is assigned to the kidnapping case in which Maddie has become an accomplice. In a journey that takes them to Baton Rouge, a mutual attraction becomes evident, but Tom and Maddie cannot trust each other. Will Maddie ever discover who she is? Will her real family ever find her? Will Maddie and Tom listen to their hearts? Or will they choose honor over love?

    " This book got four stars for surprising me. I was expecting a different, and preachy, book. The author made me feel for the main character and I will definitely be reading more books by her in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cherie Clayton | 7/9/2013

    " I didn't think I would like this book, being that is was set in the 1700's. I usually don't read stuff like this but wanted to challenge myself. I ended up loving it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mum | 4/1/2012

    " It was a fast read, and an entertaining story. A little unbelievable, on a regular basis. I was in the mood for the improbable, so it didn't bother me, but it did keep the rating to 3 rather 4 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 June | 4/12/2011

    " How many times do we put on our judgmental attitudes and attribute that to being righteous? This premise has been done before, but it mostly held my interest, and there was even a twist thrown in. "

About the Narrators

Maurice England moved to the Chicago area in the fall of 2006, after a twelve year run as a long-haul trucker, to continue the cultivation of his lifelong interest in the expressive arts and oral interpretation. A veteran audiophile, Maurice listened to well over one thousand audiobooks while on the road and fell in love with the genre. From his past experience in broadcasting, community theater, music performance, and ministry he saw narrating as a means to merge his love for books, ideas, learning, and spiritual evolution with his interest in artistic expression. While his narration experience has primarily been nonfiction, personal development, and spiritual-growth titles, Maurice anticipates using his authentically warm and folksy southern style to entertain and inspire through storytelling. Inspired most by the behind-the-scenes artists who engineer, direct, edit, and master the audiobook productions we hear, Maurice has become an absorbed student and participant in the process.

Renée Raudman is an actor and Earphones Award–winning audiobook narrator. She has performed on film, television, radio, and on stage and can also be heard in several video games and hundreds of television and radio voice-overs.
