The Georgia plantation known as Magnolia Landing has been an ideal place to grow up for Malayna and Hattie, two girls of different races born just hours apart. They have been best friends from their first breathes due to the unusual and unpopular beliefs of Malayna’s father that all men are created equal regardless of skin color. Their idyllic youth is shattered by a Civil War that takes their fathers away from home, leaving the girls to survive on their own as they learn to navigate their new reality; working to keep their families both well-fed and safe. That is until the war and Northern soldiers come to Magnolia Landing. This is their story of love, friendship, and survival... against all odds.
