Beautiful, emotional historical story about a slave and his master. Not your typical master-slave story, however, which makes for some wonderful story surprises. Has a slow build but there is an obvious purpose to it and it fits when you figure out what is going on with the characters. Really, really good book. Well done and I can't believe it's free. Has strong BDSM themes so if you're not comfortable with that, this isn't the book for you.
