Set in the deep south pre gone with the wind and the civil war, the wedding gift is a compelling and powerful story of slavery, abuse and passion. Perfect for fans of the help. What if, on your wedding day, you were given your sister-as your slave? When wealthy plantation owner Cornelius Allen marries off his daughter Clarissa, he presents her with a wedding gift-a young slave woman called Sarah. The two girls have grown up together but their lives could not have been more different. Clarissa is white and is used to a life of privilege and ease. Sarah is black and is used to a life of slavery and hard work. When Sarah decides her future lies outside the plantation, it sets in motion a series of events that will have devastating consequences for them both.
