At What Cost, Silence? (The Texian trilogy, Book 1)

Karen Lynne

It’s 1849 and Adrien Villere lives in Washington, Texas, on a tobacco plantation with his family and their slaves. Adrien knew his slaves are free, even though everywhere else they were indentured vassals. Adrien must keep it a secret that the serfs that work on the family farm are independent, but he must keep up the front that they serve his family. Adrien doesn’t care about politics; he spends his time with his servant and best friend, Isaac. Unfortunately, Adrien is also too handsome for his own good, and falls for many people throughout his life. The threat of the states seceding from the Union and his sordid affair with the neighbor’s daughter, Lily Hart, ultimately changes Adrien’s life, and thrusts him into leaving his safe haven forever for the impending war.

A fascinating, epic tale of a family farmstead that is told incredibly well! The graphic story is superb, with such vivid descriptions of a Texas plantation that readers can imagine themselves there...
