She’s the child of
the west wind. And with her incredible gifts, danger is never too far
As the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy plantation
owner and a colored Haitian woman in a time of slavery and great upheaval,
Margaret Anne Basseterre’s life is anything but easy. From the moment of her
birth, she has been coveted by the same dark forces pushing the country toward
war. For every moment of despair, an unsuspecting lost soul is given the chance
for redemption by helping her to safety.  
Through divine will, Margaret Anne and some of those
ordained to protect her end up residing on the majestic estate of her father.
As the ethereal girl grows up on the Calhoun
plantation and the country farm of her natural mother, the lives of those
around her are tested by deep family secrets and the will of wickedness. She is
set to prove that her unification of this dangerously illicit and blended
family during the societal unrest surrounding the Civil War was ordained from
on high. She is their guiding light in this most turbulent storm of the
American age. 
When it comes time for her to confront the devil who
has tainted her family, she’ll discover just how powerful the light within her
truly is. 
Margaret Anne is a
bold walk through the many societal and spiritual battles raging during the
years that America fought to establish both its identity as a nation and its
identity under God.  

A deep and poetic
read, Margaret Anne is a multi-perspective view that leads into the Redemption
